STATISTICAL LITERACY PAPERSFeatured Listing. Confounding and Cornfield: Back to the Future by Milo Schield 2018 ICOTS 
These webaccessible articles are relevant to the teaching of statistical
literacy. They
consider fundamental questions in statistical education that involve using
statistical associations in observational data (rather than random
assignment in experiments) to argue for causal connections. "a clear understanding ... of statistical issues in observational data is needed for statistical practice in the real world." Stroup et al, Teaching Statistical Principles Using Epidemiology..., The American Statistician, Feb 2004. P. 77.

"Cornfield's minimum effect size is one of the greatest contributions of statistics to human knowledge alongside the Central limit theorem and Fisher's use of random assignment to statistically control for preexisting confounders." "To change the future, we need to go back to when Jerome Cornfield argued that smoking caused cancer." "Our unwillingness to talk about observational causation, confounding and strength of evidence is arguably the primary reason our students' see little value in the introductory statistics normally taught in Stat 101." "We need to teach multivariate statistics, confounding and the Cornfield conditions so students will appreciate statistics." 05 Review: The Book of Why: The New Science of Cause and Effect  by Judea Pearl and Dana Mackenzie.
