Higher population sizes are correlated with a higher number of phonemes in a language.
The result is significant, however, the effect size of .0093 predicts an insignificant change in the amount of phonemes in a given language, falling well within the standard error for phoneme inventory sizes. The significance in this case is likely the result of a large sample size.
