standard deviation
In statistics, the standard deviation is a measure that is used to quantify the amount of variation or dispersion of a set of data values
pictograph
A pictogram, also called a pictogramme, pictograph, or simply picto, and in computer usage an icon, is an ideogram that conveys its meaning through its pictorial resemblance to a physical object
experiment
An experiment is a procedure carried out to support, refute, or validate a hypothesis
bias
Bias is an inclination or outlook to present or hold a partial perspective, often accompanied by a refusal to consider the possible merits of alternative points of view
pie chart
A pie chart is a circular statistical graphic, which is divided into slices to illustrate numerical proportion
Quantitative data
In natural sciences and social sciences, quantitative research is the systematic empirical investigation of observable phenomena via statistical, mathematical or computational techniques
reverse causation
Retrocausality is any of several hypothetical phenomena or processes that reverse causality, allowing an effect to occur before its cause
bimodal
In statistics, a bimodal distribution is a continuous probability distribution with two different modes
causation
Causation is the "causal relationship between conduct and result"
sample size
Sample size determination is the act of choosing the number of observations or replicates to include in a statistical sample
graphs
In mathematics, and more specifically in graph theory, a graph is a structure amounting to a set of objects in which some pairs of the objects are in some sense "related
