Hi, I’m Tyler Vigen! Spurious Correlations was a project I put together as a fun way to look at correlations and to think about data.
Empirical research is interesting, and I love to wonder about how variables work together.
The charts on this site aren’t meant to imply causation nor are they meant to create a distrust for research or even correlative data. Rather, I hope this project fosters interest in statistics and numerical research.
