Random Variable Problem

The total population of car passengers involved in traffic accidents are classified into six categories: two factors (one with 2 levels and one with 3 levels) crossed. The first factor is: Survivors (X1=0), Fatalities (X1=1). The second factor is: No Belt (X2=0), Adult Belt (X2=1), and Child Seat (X2=2). The proportions are as f

What is the major distinction between the Pearson and Spearman correlations? 10a. A professor obtains SAT scores and freshman grade point averages (GPAs) for a


? Explain how correlation is often miscast as causation. Specifically, as it relates to how cause is attributed to a variable when in fact, there is no causal relationship but only a correlation between the two variables. ? Give an example of correlations. ? Using the example, describe how correlation might be interpreted i

How to explain correlation coefficient between Excessive weight and breast cancer?

Recent medical research demonstrated there is a strong (r=.60) correlation between the excessive weight and incidences of breast cancer. How can we interpret this statement? Can we say that excessive weight is the leading cause of breast cancer? How confident can we be about the strength of the relation between these two variabl
