Which of the following is an accurate description of Simpson's paradox?

When groups of data are aggregated, an association can get stronger because of a confounding variable. That confounding variable is usually the number of observations in different groups of data.

When groups of data are combined, an association can get stronger because of a lurking variable. That lurking variable is usually the number of observations in the different groups of data.

When groups of data are separated, an association can get stronger because of a lurking variable. That lurking variable is usually the number of observations in the different groups of data.

When separate groups of data are combined, an association can reverse direction because of a lurking variable that was lost when the different groups of data were lumped together.

For the table below which of the following are true?

I. The sum of the values of all the conditional distributions must be 1.

II. Temperature and crime rate appear to be related (the warmer the temperature, the higher the crime rate).

III. The conditional distribution for Normal Crime Rate is roughly similar to the marginal distribution Temperature.

THIS IS THE TABLE:

__Crime Rate

______Below___ Normal____ Above

Temp. __Below 12 , 8 , 5

___ ___ Normal 35 , 41 , 24

______ Above 4 , 7 , 14

A. I only

B. II only

C. II and III only

D. III only

E. I and III only

We do not do your homework for you. Although it might take more effort to do the work on your own, you will profit more from your effort. We will be happy to evaluate your work though.

For the second problem, I found all three statements to be true, but there is no option for all three. Can you help me figure out where I went wrong?

When groups of data are separated, an association can get stronger because of a lurking variable. That lurking variable is usually the number of observations in the different groups of data.
