Answer to Question #80453 in Other Sociology for Yamilet
While correlation defines the relationship between variables it doesn’t explain whether one variable has an influence on another. In the same example, we are not able to establish a causal relationship clearly. Thus, it’s difficult to say whether students with better class attendance would pass more exams or vice versa students who do better on exams put more efforts on attending the classes.
Causality defines the dependence of changes in one variable from another. For instance, when we measure the quantity of sugar in the cookie and its sweetness, it is clear that the degree of sweet taste is a result of changes in the quantity of sugar in it (if all other ingredients remain same in proportions and content).
