Correlation, Causation, and knowing the difference

While everyone knows Berkeley’s 1710 dictum "correlation does not imply causation", knowing the difference is a critical skill in STEM fields, the social sciences, journalism, and daily life. In this team-based workshop we will learn and apply Bradford Hill's criteria for causation and analyze a range of real-life examples to distinguish the causal relationships from the correlative.
