Key Statistics Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Attribute

A qualitative characteristic of an item or unit, usually arising in quality control. For example, classifying production units as defective or nondefective results in attributes data.

• Attribute control chart

Any control chart for a discrete random variable. See Variables control chart.

• Bivariate distribution

The joint probability distribution of two random variables.

• Box plot (or box and whisker plot)

A graphical display of data in which the box contains the middle 50% of the data (the interquartile range) with the median dividing it, and the whiskers extend to the smallest and largest values (or some deined lower and upper limits).

• Coeficient of determination

See R 2 .

• 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 off-diagonal elements rij are the correlations between Xi and Xj .

• 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.

• Defects-per-unit control chart

See U chart

• Deming

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

• Density function

Another name for a probability density function

• Discrete random variable

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

• 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.

• Empirical model

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

• Error of estimation

The difference between an estimated value and the true value.

• Experiment

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

• Generating function

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

• Geometric random variable

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

• 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 .
