an R package to fit linear and generalized linear mixed-effects models.
× 243
Generalized Linear Mixed (effects) Models are typically used for modeling non-independent non-normal data (eg, longitudinal binary data).
× 242
a commercial spreadsheet program created by Microsoft.
× 241
Is a property of a hypothesis testing method: the probability of rejecting the null hypothesis given that it is false, i.e. the probability of not making a type II error. The power of a test depends o…

a simple probabilistic classifier based on applying Bayes' theorem with strong independence assumptions. A more descriptive term for the underlying probability model would …
× 238
Group differences broadly refer to statistics which quantify the differences between two or more subpopulations.
× 236
said to have a high reliability if it produces similar results under consistent conditions. DO NOT confuse reliability with validity (see tag wiki).
× 236
Machine learning framework for Python.
× 235
Kernel trick refers to kernel methods in machine learning, such as kernel support vector machine (SVM) or kernel principal components analysis (PCA). It allows to generalize linear techniques to non-l…
× 232
called continuous if its set of possible values is uncountable, and the chance that it takes any particular value is zero ($\text{P}(X = x) = 0$ for every real number $x$). A …
× 231
decided upon after the data has been collected, as opposed to "a priori".
× 227
Skewness measures (or refers to) a degree of asymmetry in the distribution of a variable.
× 227
Combining probabilities with Bayes' Theorem, especially as used for conditional inference.
× 226
The science of statistics applied to the analysis of biological or medical data.
× 224
Refers to the probability distribution of parameters conditioned on data in Bayesian statistics.
× 224
The quantiles of a distribution refer to points on its cumulative distribution function. Some common quantiles are quartiles and percentiles.
× 222
Robustness in general refers to a statistic's insensitivity to deviations from its underlying assumptions (Huber and Ronchetti, 2009).
× 222
a test for goodness of fit of data to a distribution. It is often used to test whether a variable is normally distributed.
× 221
'Large data' refers to situations where the number of observations (data points) is so large that it necessitates changes in the way the data analyst thinks about or conducts the analysis. (Not to be …
× 221
Refers to data generated from a distribution that has a countable sample space. Discrete data may be nominal (e.g. the distribution of race in a sample of individuals) or ordinal (e.g. the number of e…
× 220
Measure of distance between distributions or variables, such as Euclidean distance between points in n-space.
× 220
Gaussian processes refer to stochastic processes whose realization consists of normally distributed random variables, with the additional property that any finite collection of these random variables …
× 220
Shifting and rescaling data to assure zero mean and unit variance.
× 219
× 218
Given a random variable $X$ which arise from a parameterized distribution $F(X;θ)$, the likelihood is defined as the probability of observed data as a function of $θ: \text{L}(θ)=\text{P}(θ;X=x)$
× 216
the distribution of a random variable whose logarithm has a normal distribution.
× 216
fit curves (as in linear or non-linear regression) to data.
× 215
Refers to any statistical complication or problem due to having few data.
× 214
A distribution describing the time between events in a Poisson process; a continuous analogue of the geometric distribution.
× 213
Causal inference tries to quantify the effect of a change in $X$ on $Y$ whilst holding constant or eliminating all other relevant factors which might influence this relationship.
× 213
express measurements, usually ratio, interval, ordinal or nominal scales.
× 212
a stochastic process modelling time series, which specifies the value of the series linearly in terms of the previous values.
× 210
Average most often refers to the arithmetic mean, but more generally to measures of central tendency that use most, or all, of the data values. Examples include trimmed mean, Winsorized mean, harmonic…
× 210
the value below which half the data or probability distribution lies - when the sample size is odd, the median is the 'middle' value of an ordered sample.
× 209
a graphical representation of the frequencies of a continuous variable. The variable is divided into bins and a bar is drawn for each bin, proportional to its frequency in the data.
× 208
Refers to techniques for classifying data into categories based on similarities (which can either be known previously, or learned).
