Abstract

This seminar is about Association, Correlation and Causation:

In everyday language, dependence, association and correlation are used interchangeably. Technically, however, association is synonymous with dependence and is different from correlation. Association is a very general relationship: one variable provides information about another. Correlation is more specific: two variables are correlated when they display an increasing or decreasing trend. Because not all associations are correlations and because causality can be connected only to association, we cannot equate correlation with causality in either direction.

This workshop aims to magnify the differences between these concepts.
