Transcript of Research Methods Lecture 8 Logical Fallacies

False Causality
Cum hoc ergo propter hoc
(with it therefore because of it)
Just because two things happen together doesn't mean that there's a causal relationship
Post hoc ergo propter hoc
(after it therefore because of it)
Just because one event follows another doesn't mean that the first caused the second
Correlation =! Causation
A correlation is a statistical relationship between two variables
May be strong or weak, positive or negative
BUT DOES NOT necessarily mean that there is a causal relationship between them!
