Still on a post-Olympic graphing high

I updated the numbers on the medal count versus GDP per capita (with the finalised medal count I didn’t have when I did my first post), ran the numbers and found Per Capita GDP is correlated to Olympic success at a .524 clip:

I also decided to try out the numbers for just gold medals, and the correlation plummets down to .255:

So, money will get you medals, but first place can’t be “bought.”

Well I think it’s cool…
