This video discusses the conditions that a relationship must meet in order to be considered causal. A causal relationship occurs when one phenomenon generates another. Such a relationship might be contrasted with a coincidental relationship, in which two phenomenon concur by chance or some other factor.

This video is part of a project that I ran in 2013, in which I developed online learning material to facilitate the development of hybrid undergraduate research methods courses in Queens College’s Sociology Department.
