The numbers game can be a very funny subject when coming across two non-related commodities that seem to correlate on paper. Two sets of things that are comparable in almost every way often have two different sets of experiences that can lead to varied outcomes.
For instance, the number of space launches connected to doctorates awarded in sociology. I'm guessing like me you have raised your eyebrow at some point about people leaping to conclusions too quickly.
Some say, if one action causes another, then they are most certainly correlated? Not true. Just because two patterns occur together does not mean that one caused the other, even if it seems to make sense.
Ominous coincidence? There are many correlations out there that post a resemblance but hold no connection such as the age of Miss America correlating with murders by steam and hot objects. Not sure I would have linked them two things together myself.
But, my name is Basit and I’m not a Health Economist myself but, like bread and butter we can go hand in hand as making correlations between great individuals who cause a positive effect to employers, allows me to play a small part in the statistics of correlation.
