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).

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

Categorical data
Data consisting of counts or observations that can be classiied into categories. The categories may be descriptive.

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.

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.

Chisquare (or chisquared) random variable
A continuous random variable that results from the sum of squares of independent standard normal random variables. It is a special case of a gamma random variable.

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

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

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

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 .

Cumulative sum control chart (CUSUM)
A control chart in which the point plotted at time t is the sum of the measured deviations from target for all statistics up to time t

Defect
Used in statistical quality control, a defect is a particular type of nonconformance to speciications or requirements. Sometimes defects are classiied into types, such as appearance defects and functional defects.

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

Defectsperunit control chart
See U chart

Density function
Another name for a probability density function

Erlang random variable
A continuous random variable that is the sum of a ixed number of independent, exponential random variables.

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.

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

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.
