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 variation of the R 2 statistic that compensates for the number of parameters in a regression model. Essentially, the adjustment is a penalty for increasing the number of parameters in the model. Alias. In a fractional factorial experiment when certain factor effects cannot be estimated uniquely, they are said to be aliased.

• 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

• Bernoulli trials

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

• Center line

A horizontal line on a control chart at the value that estimates the mean of the statistic plotted on the chart. See Control chart.

• Central limit theorem

The simplest form of the central limit theorem states that the sum of n independently distributed random variables will tend to be normally distributed as n becomes large. It is a necessary and suficient condition that none of the variances of the individual random variables are large in comparison to their sum. There are more general forms of the central theorem that allow ininite variances and correlated random variables, and there is a multivariate version of the theorem.

• Central tendency

The tendency of data to cluster around some value. Central tendency is usually expressed by a measure of location such as the mean, median, or mode.

• Chi-square test

Any test of signiicance based on the chi-square distribution. The most common chi-square tests are (1) testing hypotheses about the variance or standard deviation of a normal distribution and (2) testing goodness of it of a theoretical distribution to sample data

• Completely randomized design (or experiment)

A type of experimental design in which the treatments or design factors are assigned to the experimental units in a random manner. In designed experiments, a completely randomized design results from running all of the treatment combinations in random order.

• Conditional mean

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

• Continuous random variable.

A random variable with an interval (either inite or ininite) of real numbers for its range.

• Covariance matrix

A square matrix that contains the variances and covariances among a set of random variables, say, X1 , X X 2 k , , … . The main diagonal elements of the matrix are the variances of the random variables and the off-diagonal elements are the covariances between Xi and Xj . Also called the variance-covariance matrix. When the random variables are standardized to have unit variances, the covariance matrix becomes the correlation matrix.

• Dependent variable

The response variable in regression or a designed experiment.

• Error mean square

The error sum of squares divided by its number of degrees of freedom.

• Error of estimation

The difference between an estimated value and the true value.

• Estimator (or point estimator)

A procedure for producing an estimate of a parameter of interest. An estimator is usually a function of only sample data values, and when these data values are available, it results in an estimate of the parameter of interest.

• Experiment

A series of tests in which changes are made to the system under study

• Forward selection

A method of variable selection in regression, where variables are inserted one at a time into the model until no other variables that contribute signiicantly to the model can be found.

• Gamma function

A function used in the probability density function of a gamma random variable that can be considered to extend factorials

• Generating function

A function that is used to determine properties of the probability distribution of a random variable. See Moment-generating function
