`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).

Arithmetic mean
The arithmetic mean of a set of numbers x1 , x2 ,…, xn is their sum divided by the number of observations, or ( / )1 1 n xi t n ? = . The arithmetic mean is usually denoted by x , and is often called the average

Attribute control chart
Any control chart for a discrete random variable. See Variables control chart.

Bias
An effect that systematically distorts a statistical result or estimate, preventing it from representing the true quantity of interest.

Biased estimator
Unbiased estimator.

Causal variable
When y fx = ( ) and y is considered to be caused by x, x is sometimes called a causal variable

Conditional probability density function
The probability density function of the conditional probability distribution of a continuous random variable.

Conditional probability mass function
The probability mass function of the conditional probability distribution of a discrete random variable.

Conidence coeficient
The probability 1?a associated with a conidence interval expressing the probability that the stated interval will contain the true parameter value.

Contingency table.
A tabular arrangement expressing the assignment of members of a data set according to two or more categories or classiication criteria

Crossed factors
Another name for factors that are arranged in a factorial experiment.

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

Density function
Another name for a probability density function

Design matrix
A matrix that provides the tests that are to be conducted in an experiment.

Exhaustive
A property of a collection of events that indicates that their union equals the sample space.

Factorial experiment
A type of experimental design in which every level of one factor is tested in combination with every level of another factor. In general, in a factorial experiment, all possible combinations of factor levels are tested.

False alarm
A signal from a control chart when no assignable causes are present

Finite population correction factor
A term in the formula for the variance of a hypergeometric random variable.

Generating function
A function that is used to determine properties of the probability distribution of a random variable. See Momentgenerating function

Geometric mean.
The geometric mean of a set of n positive data values is the nth root of the product of the data values; that is, g x i n i n = ( ) = / w 1 1 .
