We have studied the correlations between charged particles produced in e+e- annihilations into hadrons at c.m. energies between 29 and 37 GeV. We have analysed the correlations between the charged multiplicities of the jets and the two particle rapidity and charge correlations. No evidence for correlations between the multiplicities of the two jets is found. Two particle short range rapidity and charge correlations are observed, indicating that particles cluster in rapidity and that their charges compensate locally. An extensive study of these correlation effects by QCD Monte Carlo calculations was performed. Evidence for charge correlations due to Bose-Einstein statistics is also observed.
