Pearson (1897) discussed the problem of spurious correlations
with the use of indices that comprise a part-whole relationship.
As a ratio term, relative strength can induce spurious correlations
in regression equations.
Therefore, they disregarded the contention of spurious correlation
to the BKS study.
So we can rule out the possibility of a spurious correlation
, and be sure that does cause R.
can result when two variables in a model appear related, but there is no basis in fact for their relationship.
Many experts in the field say that Soon uses out-of-date data, publishes spurious correlations
between solar output and climate indicators, and does not take account of the evidence implicating emissions from human behavior in climate change.
Next, sources of shared method variance beyond the format of the questionnaire may also result in spurious correlations
In addition, we argue that other analysis problems likely created entirely spurious correlations
in some cases.
The smaller the ratio of times to number of SKUs (T/N) the more the analysis will be affected by spurious correlations
Both are spurious correlations
until such time as some real statistics are shown to suggest otherwise.
This method of estimating plant weight may cause spurious correlations
between plant weight and stalk number, and between plant weight and stalk weight (Kang et al.
The book's investigation of the discovery of such problems as spurious correlations
between time series and the development of smoothing and decomposition techniques were fascinating to me.
