Key Statistics Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• 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.

• 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.

• Axioms of probability

A set of rules that probabilities deined on a sample space must follow. See Probability

• Biased estimator

Unbiased estimator.

• Bivariate normal distribution

The joint distribution of two normal random variables

• Combination.

A subset selected without replacement from a set used to determine the number of outcomes in events and sample spaces.

• Components of variance

The individual components of the total variance that are attributable to speciic sources. This usually refers to the individual variance components arising from a random or mixed model analysis of variance.

• Conditional mean

The mean of the conditional probability distribution of a random variable.

• Conditional probability

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

• Continuous random variable.

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

• Convolution

A method to derive the probability density function of the sum of two independent random variables from an integral (or sum) of probability density (or mass) functions.

• Correlation

In the most general usage, a measure of the interdependence among data. The concept may include more than two variables. The term is most commonly used in a narrow sense to express the relationship between quantitative variables or ranks.

• Correlation coeficient

A dimensionless measure of the linear association between two variables, usually lying in the interval from ?1 to +1, with zero indicating the absence of correlation (but not necessarily the independence of the two variables).

• Counting techniques

Formulas used to determine the number of elements in sample spaces and events.

• Curvilinear regression

An expression sometimes used for nonlinear regression models or polynomial regression models.

• Deining relation

A subset of effects in a fractional factorial design that deine the aliases in the design.

• Empirical model

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

• Estimator (or point estimator)

A procedure for producing an estimate of a parameter of interest. An estimator is usually a function of only sample data values, and when these data values are available, it results in an estimate of the parameter of interest.

• Experiment

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

• Exponential random variable

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