Relation: associated_with

Expresses a relationship between two named things where the relationship is typically generated statistically (though not in all cases), and is weaker than its child, ‘correlated with’, but stronger than its parent, ‘related to’. This relationship holds between two concepts represented by variables for which a statistical dependence is demonstrated. E.g. the statement “Atrial Fibrillation (Afib) is associated with Myocardial Infarction (MI)” asserts that having Afib is not statistically independent from whether a patient will also have MI. Note that in Translator associations, the subject and object concepts may map exactly to the statistical variables, or represent related entities for which the variables serve as proxies in an Association (e.g. diseases, chemical entities or processes).
