Simpsons' Paradox

  • The findings of studies like this can be skewed, because it's limited to a biased population. For example, they are not surveying all mothers who gave birth, but rather only mothers who participated in specific government programs or those who chose to participate. Also, some counties and states choose not report data, and where you live matters for a numbers of reasons. So, even though there may be broad participation across income, age, ethnic, and geographic groups; it still can be biased.

    Sir, am so honored that you should comment on my post. Thank you.

    You're quite welcome! I never knew I'd have that much impact on you.

    Your books have helped me a huge lot through my career. Your comment is wholly valid and will make sure it has a key.

    OH, um.....oh, I see you are referring to Joe Celko.:hehe:

    Seriously though, I had that same feeling when I noticed he posted a mere 20 minutes after I I had a brush with a celebrity. 😛

    Definitely a revered name in the community.

  • Lol..sorry I should have clicked reply specifically to his comment. Celebrity or not, your comments are still valued. Thank you.
