Cornelius Hunter shows how to do a linear regression.
Some choice comments:

Perhaps a bit technical. Here's a simpler explanation.
|troy: Nice try, Cornelius.|
I've done a linear regression on the data.
First of all, the best fitting straight line has a slope of 0.77 rather than the roughly 5 of your arrow. Misleading by a factor of 6.
Second, the slope is not significantly different from 0 (p=0.16). There is no evidence for a relationship between the two quantities.
