In addressing the link between mental illness and homelessness it is clear that the numbers are large due to lack of medical care and the de-institutionalization from the 1960’s. In an attempt to...

Correlation only indicates the degree and direction of relationship between two variables. It does not, necessarily connote a cause-effect relationship. Even when there are grounds to believe the causal relationship exits, correlation does not tell us which variable is the cause and which, the effect. For example, the demand for a commodity and its price will generally be found to be correlated, but the question whether demand depends on price or vice-versa; will not be answered...
