Caption Contest - June 2018 - Results


We had 14 submissions for the June caption contest that featured a cartoon showing a cornfield with one row of corn growing many times larger than the corn in the rest of the field – a farmer is talking to a statistician.

The winning caption for the June contest was "Cornfield's conditions ruled out Simpson's paradox from a potential corn-founder," written by Larry Lesser from The University of Texas at El Paso. Larry's caption can be a nice vehicle to discuss Cornfield’s simple conditions required of a potential confounder to create a Simpson's Paradox situation.

An honorable mention this month goes to Jim Alloway of EMSQ Associates for his caption "Once we replicate your results with a designed experiment, we'll apply for the patent."
