All possible (subsets) regressions
A method of variable selection in regression that examines all possible subsets of the candidate regressor variables. Eficient computer algorithms have been developed for implementing all possible regressions

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.

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

Bias
An effect that systematically distorts a statistical result or estimate, preventing it from representing the true quantity of interest.

Binomial random variable
A discrete random variable that equals the number of successes in a ixed number of Bernoulli trials.

Causal variable
When y fx = ( ) and y is considered to be caused by x, x is sometimes called a causal variable

Chance cause
The portion of the variability in a set of observations that is due to only random forces and which cannot be traced to speciic sources, such as operators, materials, or equipment. Also called a common cause.

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.

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

Conditional probability density function
The probability density function of the conditional probability distribution of a continuous 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

Continuous distribution
A probability distribution for a continuous random variable.

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.

Degrees of freedom.
The number of independent comparisons that can be made among the elements of a sample. The term is analogous to the number of degrees of freedom for an object in a dynamic system, which is the number of independent coordinates required to determine the motion of the object.

Dispersion
The amount of variability exhibited by data

Distribution function
Another name for a cumulative distribution function.

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.

False alarm
A signal from a control chart when no assignable causes are present

Generating function
A function that is used to determine properties of the probability distribution of a random variable. See Momentgenerating function

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