Choosing an analysis

Good day, 

 

I want to run an analysis to test for significane between two variables that are both categorized by World Bank Income (low income, low-middle income, high middle income, and high income) groups. The two variables of interest are 1) per capita alocohol consumption and 2) prevalence of non-communiccable disease. Wanted to get some advice on the best type of analyses I should use. Thank you!

Test for the significance of what?

 

The difference between means?

 

The difference between standard deviations?

 

The correlation?

Well, without any more information, I would check non parametric correlations

 

proc corr data=WorldBankData Spearman;
var lowIncome lowMiddleIncome highMiddleIncome highIncome;
