The purpose of this research paper was to determine whether annual income is an indicator of a respondent’s level of support for the Californian independence movement. Ultimately, the analysis here determined that there is not a statistically significant relationship between the income of the participant and their support for secession in California. However, the data analysis did yield that there is a correlation between an index of ‘Support for Secession’, ‘Interest in Secession’ and ‘Seriousness of Claim’ and income. In addition, this research project determined that there is not a statistically significant relationship between the political ideology of the respondents and support for secession. There is, however, a positive relationship between the race and gender of the respondent and support for secession.

My thesis was a long-form survey to determine what, if any, relationship exists between annual income, political ideology and support for secession in California. I conducted a large historical survey as background information and, ultimately, after a multi-variate data analysis, I concluded that there is a minor positive casual relationship between an index of variables and annual income.
