Key Statistics Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Analytic study

A study in which a sample from a population is used to make inference to a future population. Stability needs to be assumed. See Enumerative study

• Assignable cause

The portion of the variability in a set of observations that can be traced to speciic causes, such as operators, materials, or equipment. Also called a special cause.

• Asymptotic relative eficiency (ARE)

Used to compare hypothesis tests. The ARE of one test relative to another is the limiting ratio of the sample sizes necessary to obtain identical error probabilities for the two procedures.

• 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.

• Comparative experiment

An experiment in which the treatments (experimental conditions) that are to be studied are included in the experiment. The data from the experiment are used to evaluate the treatments.

• Continuity correction.

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

• Continuous distribution

A probability distribution for a continuous random variable.

• 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.

• Density function

Another name for a probability density function

• Design matrix

A matrix that provides the tests that are to be conducted in an 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).

• Erlang random variable

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

• Exhaustive

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

• 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.

• First-order model

A model that contains only irstorder terms. For example, the irst-order response surface model in two variables is y xx = + ?? ? ? 0 11 2 2 + + . A irst-order model is also called a main effects model

• Fraction defective

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

• Fraction defective control chart

See P chart

• Frequency distribution

An arrangement of the frequencies of observations in a sample or population according to the values that the observations take on

• Gaussian distribution

Another name for the normal distribution, based on the strong connection of Karl F. Gauss to the normal distribution; often used in physics and electrical engineering applications

• Geometric random variable

A discrete random variable that is the number of Bernoulli trials until a success occurs.
