Simpson’s paradox

Share This

“Also attributed to Yule, the paradox states that aggregate relationships across groups can be reversed when groups are combined. For instance, it is possible that in every department (subgroup), the percentage of men is less than the percentage of women; yet in the overall combined group, the percentage of men can be greater than the percentage of women.”
