Acceptance region
In hypothesis testing, a region in the sample space of the test statistic such that if the test statistic falls within it, the null hypothesis cannot be rejected. This terminology is used because rejection of H0 is always a strong conclusion and acceptance of H0 is generally a weak conclusion

All possible (subsets) regressions
A method of variable selection in regression that examines all possible subsets of the candidate regressor variables. Eficient computer algorithms have been developed for implementing all possible regressions

Average
See Arithmetic mean.

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

Bivariate distribution
The joint probability distribution of two random variables.

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

Causeandeffect diagram
A chart used to organize the various potential causes of a problem. Also called a ishbone diagram.

Combination.
A subset selected without replacement from a set used to determine the number of outcomes in events and sample spaces.

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

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

Conidence interval
If it is possible to write a probability statement of the form PL U ( ) ? ? ? ? = ?1 where L and U are functions of only the sample data and ? is a parameter, then the interval between L and U is called a conidence interval (or a 100 1( )% ? ? conidence interval). The interpretation is that a statement that the parameter ? lies in this interval will be true 100 1( )% ? ? of the times that such a statement is made

Conidence level
Another term for the conidence coeficient.

Continuity correction.
A correction factor used to improve the approximation to binomial probabilities from a normal distribution.

Correlation matrix
A square matrix that contains the correlations among a set of random variables, say, XX X 1 2 k , ,…, . The main diagonal elements of the matrix are unity and the offdiagonal elements rij are the correlations between Xi and Xj .

Covariance
A measure of association between two random variables obtained as the expected value of the product of the two random variables around their means; that is, Cov(X Y, ) [( )( )] =? ? E X Y ? ? X Y .

Decision interval
A parameter in a tabular CUSUM algorithm that is determined from a tradeoff between false alarms and the detection of assignable causes.

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

Enumerative study
A study in which a sample from a population is used to make inference to the population. See Analytic study

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.

Firstorder model
A model that contains only irstorder terms. For example, the irstorder response surface model in two variables is y xx = + ?? ? ? 0 11 2 2 + + . A irstorder model is also called a main effects model
