Key Statistics Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Attribute

A qualitative characteristic of an item or unit, usually arising in quality control. For example, classifying production units as defective or nondefective results in attributes data.

• Attribute control chart

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

• Average

See Arithmetic mean.

• Backward elimination

A method of variable selection in regression that begins with all of the candidate regressor variables in the model and eliminates the insigniicant regressors one at a time until only signiicant regressors remain

• Biased estimator

Unbiased estimator.

• Bivariate normal distribution

The joint distribution of two normal random variables

• Coeficient of determination

See R 2 .

• Conditional probability

The probability of an event given that the random experiment produces an outcome in another event.

• Conditional probability distribution

The distribution of a random variable given that the random experiment produces an outcome in an event. The given event might specify values for one or more other random variables

• 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 off-diagonal elements rij are the correlations between Xi and Xj .

• Crossed factors

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

• Density function

Another name for a probability density function

• Dependent variable

The response variable in regression or a designed experiment.

• Enumerative study

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

• Error variance

The variance of an error term or component in a model.

• Exhaustive

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

• Experiment

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

• Exponential random variable

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

• Gamma random variable

A random variable that generalizes an Erlang random variable to noninteger values of the parameter r

• Hat matrix.

In multiple regression, the matrix H XXX X = ( ) ? ? -1 . This a projection matrix that maps the vector of observed response values into a vector of itted values by yˆ = = X X X X y Hy ( ) ? ? ?1 .
