Thanks all.

This data is messssy. Took one stab at it, conclusive in my initial stratification but some strata were statistically insignificant.

Took another crack at restratification -- inconclusive results.

Took yet another crack at it, and finally I'm on to something.

Well so I had a wild night last night. I sat down with my data and wrote 64 pages on a 24 hour marathon. No sleep, no food, just one cup of coffee.

Sadly, I didn't get what I was looking for. Got a null. However, I did get a side result. It's an obvious one, but even providing statistical evidence for obvious claims is a nice feat.

The obvious was... individuals who hold pseudoscientific beliefs are more likely to
1) be less exposed to scientific media
2) keep up to date with science news less frequently
3) view science as less important in their lives

The demographic was undergraduate students age 18-24.

There was actually a really big relationship between hours devoted to religious activity and number of pseudoscientific beliefs as well. A little surprising, not entirely. But my sense is it's not actually religious, it's probably political.

Another surprise was that there really wasn't any educational discipline among the individuals with pseudoscientific beliefs. In fact, given that my survey was pretty physics-population biased, I was quite shocked that they didn't find their way out of the mix. Learn something new every day though!
