Title: About Simpson's Paradox
Author: Matheson, Kelly
Abstract: Simpson's Paradox is a problem that may arise during analysis of two or three-way tables. It is characterized by the reversal of an association seen within individual groups, when those groups are combined. This phenomenon is often caused by "lurking" or confounding variables that are not evident until the groups are combined.
