One of the skills that characterize great business data analysts is the ability to communicate the practical implications of quantitative analyses to any kind of audience member.

Even the most sophisticated statistical analyses are not useful to a business if they do not lead to actionable advice, or if the answers to those business questions are not conveyed in a way that non-technical people can understand.

Q6. To test whether a certain advertising campaign would work, an analytics team sorts
their customer list from lowest to highest customer ID number, and then sends
their advertisement to the first 1000 customers on the list. The rest of the customers did not receive any
advertisements that week. When analyzing
the results of the campaign one week later, the analytics team realized that there
was a previously unknown pattern in the customer ID numbers: the lower the
customer number, the longer the person had been a customer. Thus,
the customers who received the advertisement were the individuals who had been
customers with the company the longest.
The analytics team decided the test was invalid and needed to be
repeated. The reason for their decision
was that analyzing the results in their current form would result in the
following logical fallacy (or fallacies):

  • Over-generalization
  • Inferring causation from correlation
  • Lack of controls

employees with direct care responsibilities were absent from work. Due to the
high levels of absenteeism, patient satisfaction
was declining, 20% of patient-related
work was not getting done, and 47% of non-patient work was not getting
done. At the advice of a consulting
company, the hospital implemented a positive incentive system that would allow
all employees to convert up to 24 hours of unused sick time into additional pay or more vacation days in
order to reduce absenteeism. After 6
months of implementing the program, the hospital analysts calculated that
absentee rates declined an average of 11.5 hours per employee, and concluded that
the program was successful in this company.

their conclusion, and if so, which fallacy (or fallacies)?
