Abstract: The table, Pearson Correlation of Variables, contains information regarding the first 40 factors listed on The Student Voice Survey instrument, created for this study. The data helps identify which factors are correlated and have positive or negative relationships with one another. The correlations coefficients and p-values/significance levels help us understand what factors African-American male students in this study perceived as being related to school dropout for Black boys.
