Jordan Ellenberg’s Op-Ed in the Washington Post

Jordan Ellenberg wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post which was published on 8/31/2021; “Coronavirus vaccines work. But this statistical illusion makes people think they don’t.”

In Israel for a time, more vaccinated people were hospitalized for COVID-19 than unvaccinated people. There’s no reason to worry,” writes Jordan Ellenberg, a math professor at the University of Wisconsin, in an op/ed.  “Simpson’s paradox is a warning that the whole of the data often looks weirdly different than the sum of its parts.”
