Question description

A sociologist discovers that workers take more sick days around the same time of year in which they buy more blankets. Therefore, the sociologist concludes, the more blankets that people buy, the sicker they will get.

In 100 words or less, explain what is wrong with the sociologist’s argument. (Remember: In statistics, we talk in terms of variables. To get full credit for this answer, use the terms “explanatory variable”, “response variable”, and “lurking variable”.)
