What do we mean when we say that correlation does not imply causality? What are some of the ways in which an empirical analyst attempts to disentangle the two? Provide examples.

Correlation: When there is a change in one variable when other variable is change, is called correlation.
causality: The relation between variable with explanation is called causation.
Examples to discriminate correlation and causation.
(1)
Drinking coffee makes people more productive.
This is the example of correlation because there people may think this is because of caffeine but it could be because when people go out to drink coffee shop, they met new people and get distracted by thousands of things, which can lead them to a productive day, so there is no certain cause and effect, thus it is a example of correlation.
(2)
After exercise, people get exhausted.
This is an example of causation because when people exercise, they muscles of the body works more than doing normal things and thus feel exhausted, here affect is the exhausted and the cause is exercise, hence it is an example of causation.

I need to determine multicollinearity of predictors, but I have only two. So, if VIF 1 1 βˆ’ R j 2 , then in case there are no other predictors VIF will always equal 1? So, maybe it's not even possible to gauge multicollinearity if there are only two predictors?

If the coefficients of a simple regression line, B 0 and B 1 , are the same then why are the regression lines of y on x and x on y different given the condition r 2 < 1. I have tried all the manipulation and graphical analysis I can but can't seem to see why this is happening.
asked 2022-06-26
Given that X and Y are RV supported on [ 2 ,   3 ] , If the correlation coefficient of X t and Y s is 0 for any s ,   t   ∈   [ 2 ,   3 ] , then X and Y are independent.

The Porsche Club of America sponsors driver education events that provide high-performance driving instruction on actual racetracks. Because safety is a primary consideration at such events, many owners elect to install roll bars in their cars. Deegan Industries manufactures two types of roll bars for Porsches. Model DRB is bolted to the car using existing holes in the car's frame. Model DRW is a heavier roll bar that must be welded to the car's frame. Model DRB requires 20 pounds of a special high alloy steel, 40 minutes of manufacturing time, and 60 minutes of assembly time. Model DRW requires 25 pounds of the special high alloy steel, 100 minutes of manufacturing time, and 40 minutes of assembly time. Deegan's steel supplier indicated that at most 40,000 pounds of the high-alloy steel will be available next quarter. In addition, Deegan estimates that 2000 hours of manufacturing time and 1600 hours of assembly time will be available next quarter. The pro?t contributions are $200 per unit for model DRB and $280 per unit for model DRW. The linear programming model for this problem is as follows:
Max 200DRB + 280DRW
s.t.
20DRB + 25DRW 40,000 Steel Available
40DRB + 100DRW ? 120,000 Manufacturing minutes
60DRB + 40DRW ? 96,000 Assembly minutes
DRB, DRW ? 0
