This is a particular (and a little peculiar) phrase, one that they used very deliberately. We'll dig into this term in some detail later in the course, but for now, I want you to think about the difference between may be associated with and caused . Take a chance here to guess what you think the difference is between these two phrases. 1 point I believe that the two variables are related however it doesn’t necessarily mean that there is a relationship or cause/effect between the two. 8.
