Good evening. I forgot how is called this effect (or whatever its called).

For example there is a schedule of reducing the level of harvest in a particular country in a year. And there is a similar graph of number of sneakers is also bought in a year. and their movements are 1 to 1, from which it can be assumed that buying sneakers associated with productivity (or Vice versa).

P..S. the Correlation is when the relationship between the data all the same there. A false correlation is when formal methods show us that there is a correlation, but the logic and semantics says it is not. Sneakers and productivity - a good example of the second, but certainly not the first.
