aerror (or arisk)
In hypothesis testing, an error incurred by failing to reject a null hypothesis when it is actually false (also called a type II error).

Addition rule
A formula used to determine the probability of the union of two (or more) events from the probabilities of the events and their intersection(s).

Alternative hypothesis
In statistical hypothesis testing, this is a hypothesis other than the one that is being tested. The alternative hypothesis contains feasible conditions, whereas the null hypothesis speciies conditions that are under test

Average
See Arithmetic mean.

Axioms of probability
A set of rules that probabilities deined on a sample space must follow. See Probability

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

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.

Conidence level
Another term for the conidence coeficient.

Cumulative distribution function
For a random variable X, the function of X deined as PX x ( ) ? that is used to specify the probability distribution.

Defect concentration diagram
A quality tool that graphically shows the location of defects on a part or in a process.

Degrees of freedom.
The number of independent comparisons that can be made among the elements of a sample. The term is analogous to the number of degrees of freedom for an object in a dynamic system, which is the number of independent coordinates required to determine the motion of the object.

Dependent variable
The response variable in regression or a designed experiment.

Dispersion
The amount of variability exhibited by data

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.

Event
A subset of a sample space.

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

Expected value
The expected value of a random variable X is its longterm average or mean value. In the continuous case, the expected value of X is E X xf x dx ( ) = ?? ( ) ? ? where f ( ) x is the density function of the random variable X.

Extra sum of squares method
A method used in regression analysis to conduct a hypothesis test for the additional contribution of one or more variables to a model.

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.
