Simpson’s paradox, or why your intuition about averages is probably wrong Posted on September 17, 2018Author Paras ChopraPosted in Math, Psychology I came across Simpson’s paradox in Judea Pearl’s book The Book of Why. It completely changed the way I thought about average statistics such as mean, standard deviation and correlation. Inspired by that, I explored Simpson’s paradox in a 10-minute video. I hope you enjoy the video. Leave your comments on Youtube (or on an email to me) if you have feedback.
