Abstract [en]

An explanation to Lord’s paradox using ordinary least square regres- sion models is given. It is not a paradox at all, if the regression parameters are interpreted as predictive or as causal with stricter conditions and be aware of laws of averages. We use derivation of a super-model from a given sub-model, when its residuals can be modelled with other potential predictors as a solution.
