Can you please explain “correlation does not imply causation”?
“Correlation does not imply causation” means it does not necessarily follow that the two highly correlated variables imply that one variable is causing the other variable.
For example, the waistline and neckline are correlated. That’s what some people use when shopping clothes and do not want to wear in the mall to fit. They just get the waistline part of the clothe and fit around the neck. So these two variables are truly positively correlated. However, it does not imply that neckline is causing the measurement in waistline.
Hope this helps.
