Key Statistics Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• `-error (or `-risk)

In hypothesis testing, an error incurred by rejecting a null hypothesis when it is actually true (also called a type I error).

• a-error (or a-risk)

In hypothesis testing, an error incurred by failing to reject a null hypothesis when it is actually false (also called a type II error).

• Average run length, or ARL

The average number of samples taken in a process monitoring or inspection scheme until the scheme signals that the process is operating at a level different from the level in which it began.

• Axioms of probability

A set of rules that probabilities deined on a sample space must follow. See Probability

• Bernoulli trials

Sequences of independent trials with only two outcomes, generally called “success” and “failure,” in which the probability of success remains constant.

• Bivariate distribution

The joint probability distribution of two random variables.

• Bivariate normal distribution

The joint distribution of two normal random variables

• Categorical data

Data consisting of counts or observations that can be classiied into categories. The categories may be descriptive.

• Chance cause

The portion of the variability in a set of observations that is due to only random forces and which cannot be traced to speciic sources, such as operators, materials, or equipment. Also called a common cause.

• Comparative experiment

An experiment in which the treatments (experimental conditions) that are to be studied are included in the experiment. The data from the experiment are used to evaluate the treatments.

• Conditional variance.

The variance of the conditional probability distribution of a random variable.

• Correlation coeficient

A dimensionless measure of the linear association between two variables, usually lying in the interval from ?1 to +1, with zero indicating the absence of correlation (but not necessarily the independence of the two variables).

• Cumulative sum control chart (CUSUM)

A control chart in which the point plotted at time t is the sum of the measured deviations from target for all statistics up to time t

• Deining relation

A subset of effects in a fractional factorial design that deine the aliases in the design.

• Discrete uniform random variable

A discrete random variable with a inite range and constant probability mass function.

• Event

A subset of a sample space.

• Finite population correction factor

A term in the formula for the variance of a hypergeometric random variable.

• Fraction defective

In statistical quality control, that portion of a number of units or the output of a process that is defective.

• Fraction defective control chart

See P chart

• Harmonic mean

The harmonic mean of a set of data values is the reciprocal of the arithmetic mean of the reciprocals of the data values; that is, h n x i n i = ? ? ? ? ? = ? ? 1 1 1 1 g .
