a.
Just because two variables are correlated doesn't mean that one necessarily caused the other.
b.
There is nothing in correlation analysis that can be used to establish causality.
c.
When you obtain a statistically significant correlation coefficient between two variables, you can safely
assume that one variable caused another.
d.
All that analytical procedures can do is measure the nature and degree of association between variables.

52. The NFL office discovered data covering attendance at professional football games in the late 1940s and early 1950s.
The game with the highest attendance was between the St. Louis Cardinals and the New York Giants. The office also
found considerable information that someone had collected on each game day such as the level of GDP, the Dow,
number of persons employed, number of new businesses formed during the week preceding the game, and the
population. A student intern took the information and built a regression model to predict game attendance for the
upcoming season. The model should
a.
accurately predict game attendance.
b.
NOT predict game attendance accurately because the variable levels of today (i.e., population, Dow, etc.) are
out of range of those used to build the regression model.
c.
predict game attendance accurately because the variable levels of today (i.e., population, Dow, etc.) are out
of range of those used to build the regression model.
d.
predict game attendance accurately because the variable levels (i.e., population, Dow, etc.) are within range
of those used to build the regression model.
e.
None of these are correct.
