Aldrich, J. (1995) Correlations Genuine and Spurious in Pearson and Yule Statistical Science, 10, (4), pp. 364-376.

Record type: Article

They also examined a number of situations in which the correlation inference was unsatisfactory. This paper considers the development of their ideas on both genuine and spurious correlations and makes some reference to related modern work.
