  • 0:00 - 0:05
    Being in a hospital, that fact alone, increases your
  • 0:05 - 0:09
    probability of dying by a factor 40 is a causal
  • 0:09 - 0:13
    statement. It says the hospital causes you to die.
  • 0:13 - 0:16
    Not just it coincides with the fact that you die
  • 0:16 - 0:19
    and very frequently people in the public get
  • 0:19 - 0:22
    this wrong. People observe there is a correlation
  • 0:22 - 0:25
    but they suggest the correlation is causal in
  • 0:25 - 0:29
    attempting to make you understand the statistic
  • 0:29 - 0:32
    as a call of action. Now, to understand why
  • 0:32 - 0:34
    this could be wrong let’s dive in a little bit
  • 0:34 - 0:36
    deeper into the same example
