Question description

Instructions:

Your response should be 400-750 words, in APA format, 12pt font, 1" margins, references page, etc. (abstract not required). Make sure to use a .doc, docx, or rtf file format and attach the file when submitting. Also, these assignments have a minimum of five (5) required sources. While the video can count as one source, this means you need to find additional sources to add detail and support to your answers. Look for real world examples in the news, peer reviewed journals, etc. For more information about the assignments, refer to the assignment and its grading rubric on Blackboard.

Prompt:

For this assignment, I’d like you to visit one of the following websites: http://tylervigen.com/spurious-correlations or http://tylervigen.com/discover. Both websites are spurious correlation generators; some of these are quite funny (i.e., people who drowned after falling out of a fishing boat and marriage rates in Kentucky (r = 0.95); anything involving Nicholas Cage). Pick out two correlations (if you use http://tylervigen.com/discover, you can generate your own two correlations). Be sure to write down the variables in each of your correlations.

After you’ve pick your two correlations, answer the following questions:

  • Why is this relationship spurious?
  • How could these two variables related? (ridiculous theories are encouraged here)

Spurious correlations as the ones shown on figures 1 and 2 appear when one attempts to
relate two variables that are independent between them or related through a third variable
(Berman & Wang, 2017). Even while the two variables seem to relate to e...
