Trying to do a correlation

I am trying to do a workflow to see if there is a correlation between states with nuclear reactors and the rate of cancer in states.  I am stuck in my workflow and am not sure if I correctly combined the state columns.  Also I am not sure if I can draw a correlation between the state since it is a V_WString and the Rate is Double.

 

Help please

Via iPhone I suggest counting the number of reactors in a state with the incidence of cancer. But correlation isn't causation. I would want to see other energy sources and other factors such as proximity to the reactor. I'm doubtful that there will be a correlation.

Thanks.  Yea it doesn't look like there is causation at a glance.  I haven't used the association tool before and was trying to see if I could put together data to use with it.  Back to the canvas!

You may however find a correlation between solar energy and skin cancer.
