Stats Question ? [Prev. Q.] [Next Q.] [Prev. Chap.] [Next Chap.] [goto] *****


There was a study done in Maine that related drinking with early deaths. In this study there were 8 counties studied. The correlation was 1.2. Given this information it would be safe to say: (i) Drinking is a definite cause of early deaths. (ii) Drinking does not necessarily cause early deaths. (iii) Not enough information is given to determine the cause. Which one of these statements are true?
  • only i is true
  • only iii is true
  • only ii is true
  • both i and iii are true
  • none of the above
