How do I find evidence that my trend exists?

How do you prove your trend exists?

There are several ways to find evidence that your trend exists. 

  1. You can prove your trend exists if it has been written about in books, streaming videos, and eBooks.
  2. You can prove your trend exists if it has been written about in academic literature.
  3. Statistics are vital to proving your trend exists.

If you can locate your trend, or find statistics that discuss the occurrence of your trend over time you have proved that your trend exists.

A note: if your trend is new there might not be any documented evidence.  In order for something to be a trend, it has to be documented over time.
