Statistics: On Correlation

Robust like the non-parametric statistics that Kyle T. discussed last week, correlational analyses, Kyle’s topic this week, provide the raw materials for the much vaunted regressive analyses, his topic next week. ┬áIn essence, as Kyle explains, correlations generally assess how two sets of patterns of data line up next to one another; and, as he emphasizes, however they line up does not say anything about however they may arrive in that relationship: Correlation does not describe causality.

However, the two are related; to learn how correlation and causality do connect, be sure to check back in on our next installment in this series: Regression.

Warmly yours,
