`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).

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.

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

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.

Coeficient of determination
See R 2 .

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

Components of variance
The individual components of the total variance that are attributable to speciic sources. This usually refers to the individual variance components arising from a random or mixed model analysis of variance.

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

Conidence level
Another term for the conidence coeficient.

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

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

Continuous uniform random variable
A continuous random variable with range of a inite interval and a constant probability density function.

Critical value(s)
The value of a statistic corresponding to a stated signiicance level as determined from the sampling distribution. For example, if PZ z PZ ( )( .) . ? =? = 0 025 . 1 96 0 025, then z0 025 . = 1 9. 6 is the critical value of z at the 0.025 level of signiicance. Crossed factors. Another name for factors that are arranged in a factorial experiment.

Demingâ€™s 14 points.
A management philosophy promoted by W. Edwards Deming that emphasizes the importance of change and quality

Distribution free method(s)
Any method of inference (hypothesis testing or conidence interval construction) that does not depend on the form of the underlying distribution of the observations. Sometimes called nonparametric method(s).

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

Error propagation
An analysis of how the variance of the random variable that represents that output of a system depends on the variances of the inputs. A formula exists when the output is a linear function of the inputs and the formula is simpliied if the inputs are assumed to be independent.

Experiment
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
