"Correlation does not imply causation"




Question;Require a simple brief statement about the post below"Correlation does not imply causation" is a phrase that emphasizes that correlation between two variables does not automatically imply that one causes the other (though correlation is necessary for linear causation, and can indicate possible causes or areas for further investigation... in other words, correlation can be a hint).[1][2]The opposite belief, correlation proves causation, is a logical fallacy by which two events that occur together are claimed to have a cause-and-effect relationship. The fallacy is also known as cum hoc ergo propter hoc (Latin for "with this, therefore because of this") and false cause. By contrast, the fallacy post hoc ergo propter hocrequires that one event occur before the other and so may be considered a type ofcum hoc fallacy.
