Empirical Research Methods

What is correlation?

Correlation (or: association)
• There is a connection between A and B, free of bias

Empirical Research Methods

What is direction?

Direction
• The connection goes from A to B, but not from B to A (i.e., A is cause to B, drives B, etc., but
not the other way round)

Empirical Research Methods

What is non-spuriousness?

Non-spuriousness
• It is truly A that drives B, and not any other unobserved mechanism

Empirical Research Methods

what is mediation?

Mediation allows to properly model the causal chains often argued for in theories, and
even multiple causal pathways at the same time

Empirical Research Methods

What model would you use when you have count variable ?


Poisson

Negative binomial (in case of overdispersion, which means that
variance >> mean)

Empirical Research Methods

What is reverse causality?

The connection goes from B to A.

Empirical Research Methods

Which models would you use when you have to deal with categorical variables?

Ordered logit
Ordered prodit

Empirical Research Methods

What is randomness?

Randomness:
• two phenomena occur at random

Empirical Research Methods

How to prove cause-and-effect relationship?

To show a clear cause-and-effect relationship:
• Argue why correlation not just mere coincidence
• Exclude that observed correlation is caused by a third mechanism (non-spuriousness!)
• Pin down direction of effect (A -> B, B -> A, A <-> B)

Empirical Research Methods

What is causation?

Causation:
• causation indicates that one phenomenon is the result of the occurrence of the other

Empirical Research Methods

What is correlation?

Correlation:
• two phenomena can be observed together (non-random occurrence)
• does not automatically mean that one phenomenon is the cause of the other phenomenon

Empirical Research Methods

What is content validity?

Content validity: is the scale/construct really fully captured?
