Subject:      correlation and time series
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"

I want to assess whether or not there is a significant correlation between two variables 'spend' and 'score' across time. Sounds easy, or :-)

However, my data is structured as follows: 400.000 customers' 'spend' and 'score' has been observed for 17 time periods. That gives me 34 variables for each customer: spend_1 spend_2 ...etc..... and score_1 score_2....etc...

The theory is that there is a positive correlation between spending behaviour and scoring but I don't know how to prove it.

Can anyone put me on the right track ? My question is both theoretically and practically (using SAS).
