Caveat, Applied Statistics

Caveat

We must be careful when interpreting the meaning of association. Although two variables may be associated, this association does not imply that variation in the independent variable is a cause of variation in the dependent variable (or vice versa). For instance, age and income are usually related. However, a mere increase in age does not cause an increase in income. We can determine the presence or absence of association through statistics. However, there is no basis for concluding that a cause-effect relation exists between these variables.
