Hello mates,

I am posting this here because I didn't find a forum "Statistics".

What is the main reason:
My brother wish to discuss with people the Simpson's paradox. He believe there is no paradox and it is a just a "Manifestation of the properties of weighted average."

You could see what is a Simpson's paradox here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simpson's_paradox
http://www.vidoevo.com/yvideo.php?i=d2dMVUR3cWuRpOGVMQjQ&maths-simpson-s-paradox=

On the other hand you could see the article of my brother here:
http://simpsonparadox.wordpress.com/
and simple two videos:

I just want to apologise to the administrators for not posting in a proper forum but I am new here, and as I said I didn't find statistic forum.
Also I hope it will be creative discussion.
Thank you.

The wiki article already says that it is not an actual paradox. They way they described it reminded me of the electoral college.
