I am working on a meta-analysis with the program R.

Here I am investigating the relationship between the dependent variable

**"participation in Lobbying"**(results = yes or no) and the independent variable

**"company size"**(result = value of assets).

The result I got is an Fisher's Z-transformed correlations coefficient with an value of

**0.2911**, significiance-level =

**0.1%**, confidence interval =

**[0.2501; 0,3321]**.

My problem is: I don't know how to interpret this result.

I think there is a positive relationship of 29,11% between the variables.

**But can I make the following statement**: With 29.11% you can say that companies which are participating in Lobbying they have a big company size? Or I can't make such direkt statements with the correlation coefficient????

I would be really thankfull if anybody could help me!
