Activation Analysis definition: A method of chemical analysis based on the detection of characteristic radionuclides following a nuclear bombardment. It is also known as radioactivity analysis. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
activation analysis definition: chemical analytic method based on the detection of characteristic radionuclides following a nuclear bombardment.
Actuarial Analysis definition: The application of probability and statistical methods to calculate the risk of occurrence of any event, such as onset of illness, recurrent disease, hospitalization, disability, or death. It may include calculation of the anticipated money costs of such events and of the premiums necessary to provide for payment of such costs.
Analysis of Variance definition: A statistical technique that isolates and assesses the contributions of categorical independent variables to variation in the mean of a continuous dependent variable.
Analysis of Variance definition: A statistical technique which helps in making inference whether three or more samples might come from populations having the same mean; specifically, whether the differences among the samples might be caused by chance variation.
Bibliometrics definition: The use of statistical methods in the analysis of a body of literature to reveal the historical development of subject fields and patterns of authorship, publication, and use. Formerly called statistical bibliography. (from The ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science, 1983)
Cluster Analysis definition: A set of statistical methods used to group variables or observations into strongly inter-related subgroups. In epidemiology, it may be used to analyze a closely grouped series of events or cases of disease or other health-related phenomenon with well-defined distribution patterns in relation to time or place or both.
Cluster Analysis definition: Methods for grouping objects into subsets such that those within each cluster are more closely related to one another than objects assigned to different clusters.
Discriminant Analysis definition: A statistical analytic technique used with discrete dependent variables, concerned with separating sets of observed values and allocating new values. It is sometimes used instead of regression analysis.
Discriminant Function Analysis definition: A statistical technique used to determine which variables discriminate between two or more naturally groups and to determine whether groups differ with regard to the mean of a variable.
