I've taken a basic statistics course so I have a little background but probably not enough for what I would like to do.
Basically I have two datasets, one of my sleep patterns for the past 2 years and the other is a year's worth of performance data in a video game I play. I would like to see if there's a correlation between the two, but if I did I direct comparison I think there wouldn't be that interesting of a pattern because I gradually have improved over time independent of sleep.
I guess what I'm interested in is there an association between my relative performance on any given day in comparison to how I was doing around the same time. Maybe this isn't possible, but if anyone has some ideas I would appreciate it!
Note: This data set is only of myself so I can't really do a control.
