Alias
In a fractional factorial experiment when certain factor effects cannot be estimated uniquely, they are said to be aliased.

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

Bayes’ estimator
An estimator for a parameter obtained from a Bayesian method that uses a prior distribution for the parameter along with the conditional distribution of the data given the parameter to obtain the posterior distribution of the parameter. The estimator is obtained from the posterior distribution.

Bayes’ theorem
An equation for a conditional probability such as PA B (  ) in terms of the reverse conditional probability PB A (  ).

Bivariate normal distribution
The joint distribution of two normal random variables

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

Conditional probability density function
The probability density function of the conditional probability distribution of a continuous random variable.

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

Conidence coeficient
The probability 1?a associated with a conidence interval expressing the probability that the stated interval will contain the true parameter value.

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

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

Deming
W. Edwards Deming (1900–1993) was a leader in the use of statistical quality control.

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

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).

Eficiency
A concept in parameter estimation that uses the variances of different estimators; essentially, an estimator is more eficient than another estimator if it has smaller variance. When estimators are biased, the concept requires modiication.

Event
A subset of a sample space.

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

Forward selection
A method of variable selection in regression, where variables are inserted one at a time into the model until no other variables that contribute signiicantly to the model can be found.

Fraction defective
In statistical quality control, that portion of a number of units or the output of a process that is defective.
