Correlational laws refer to laws that specify the systematic relationships among classes of empirical events. The events described by Correlational laws do not need to be causally related unlike causal laws . One can note, for example, that as average daily temperature rises, so does the death rate without knowing or even caring if the two (2) events are causally related.
