Linear regression implies causality?
Linear regression is not supposed to imply causality, why in this video do they say yes?
I'm very confused
Thank you for your question!
Indeed neither correlation, nor regression necessarily imply causation. When faced with a problem, very careful analysis needs to be performed to determine the true cause-and-effect relationship.
This lesson aims at telling the difference between correlation and regression, which could be a subtle one.
my confusion is because in the lessons and in the 365 booklet it says that linear regression is used for causal relationships, why? causal and causality is different?
