Key Statistics Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Cause-and-effect diagram

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

• Central composite design (CCD)

A second-order response surface design in k variables consisting of a two-level factorial, 2k axial runs, and one or more center points. The two-level factorial portion of a CCD can be a fractional factorial design when k is large. The CCD is the most widely used design for itting a second-order model.

• Coeficient of determination

See R 2 .

• 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

• Cook’s distance

In regression, Cook’s distance is a measure of the inluence of each individual observation on the estimates of the regression model parameters. It expresses the distance that the vector of model parameter estimates with the ith observation removed lies from the vector of model parameter estimates based on all observations. Large values of Cook’s distance indicate that the observation is inluential.

• Critical region

In hypothesis testing, this is the portion of the sample space of a test statistic that will lead to rejection of the null hypothesis.

• 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.

• Discrete random variable

A random variable with a inite (or countably ininite) range.

• 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).

• Empirical model

A model to relate a response to one or more regressors or factors that is developed from data obtained from the system.

• Enumerative study

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

• Error sum of squares

In analysis of variance, this is the portion of total variability that is due to the random component in the data. It is usually based on replication of observations at certain treatment combinations in the experiment. It is sometimes called the residual sum of squares, although this is really a better term to use only when the sum of squares is based on the remnants of a model-itting process and not on replication.

• Experiment

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

• 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.

• Factorial experiment

A type of experimental design in which every level of one factor is tested in combination with every level of another factor. In general, in a factorial experiment, all possible combinations of factor levels are tested.

• Finite population correction factor

A term in the formula for the variance of a hypergeometric random variable.

• Fraction defective control chart

See P chart

• Generating function

A function that is used to determine properties of the probability distribution of a random variable. See Moment-generating function

• Harmonic mean

The harmonic mean of a set of data values is the reciprocal of the arithmetic mean of the reciprocals of the data values; that is, h n x i n i = ? ? ? ? ? = ? ? 1 1 1 1 g .
