Ep 159: Wedding cost, marriage success and cats

From a recent chat with ABC Central West, this week is definitely a correlation of the week. Two separate stories on the topic of love and attachment highlight a couple of statistical concerns you need to be wary of when drawing conclusions from research:
  1. The correlation of wedding / engagement ring cost and marriage longevity (concern: correlation does not necessarily equal causation);
  2. Does your cat really love you? (concern: sample size)
Listen in below or on the mp3 (and all credit again to ABC and Kia).
