Abstract

After some brief historical comments on statistical aspects of causality two current views are outlined and their limitations sketched. One definition is that causality is a statistical association that cannot be explained away by confounding variables and the other is based on a link with notions in the design of experiments. The importance of underlying processes or mechanisms is stressed. Implications for empirical statistical analysis are discussed.
