Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics
Encyclopedias
Abstract
The Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics presents stateoftheart information and readytouse facts from the fields of measurement and statistics in an unintimidating style. The ideas and tools contained in these pages are approachable and can be invaluable for understanding our very technical world and the increasing flow of information. Although there are references that cover statistics and assessment in depth, none provides as comprehensive a resource in as focused and accessible a manner as the three volumes of this Encyclopedia. Through approximately 500 contributions, experts provide an overview and an explanation of the major topics in these two areas.

Reader's Guide
The purpose of the Reader's Guide is to provide you with a tool you can use to locate specific entries in the encyclopedia, as well as to find out what other related entries might be of interest to you. For example, if you are interested in the visual display of information and want to learn how to create a bar chart (under the general heading of Charts, Graphs, and Visual Displays in the Reader's Guide), you can also find reference to such entries as Histogram, Line Chart, and Mosaic Plots, all related to the same general topic.
The Reader's Guide is also a very direct and simple way to get an overview of which items are contained in the encyclopedia. Although each of the categories lists items in alphabetic order (as the encyclopedia is organized), you can glance through the main headings of the guide and then focus more on a particular area of interest. Then, just turn to any particular entry you want to locate. These are easily found because they appear in alphabetical order.

Preface
It's an interesting paradox when an important subject, which can help us make sense of our busy, everyday world, is considered very difficult to approach. Such is the case with measurement and statistics. However, this does not necessarily have to be the case, and we believe that the Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics will show you why.
These two areas of study encompass a very wide range of topics, and a knowledge of even the basic concepts and ideas allows us to be much better prepared as intelligent consumers of information.
Whether we are interested in knowing if there is a difference between two groups in their preference for a particular brand of cereal or how the Americans with Disabilities Act works, we need to know how to analyze and interpret information. And often, when that information is in the form of numbers, that's where statistics and measurement come into play. That basic stat course in college might have been a nightmare, but the material is no more difficult to grasp and apply than is any other discipline in the social and behavioral sciences.
Although hundreds of books have been written about the different topics that are contained in the Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics, and there are thousands upon thousands of studies that have been conducted in this area, what we offer here is something quite different—a comprehensive overview of important topics. What we hope we have accomplished are entries that comprise a comprehensive overview of the most important topics in the areas of measurement and statistics—entries that share this important information in a way that is informative; not too technical; and even, in some cases, entertaining.
Through almost 500 contributions and some special elements that will be described later in this preface, experts in each of the entries contained in these pages contribute an overview and an explanation of the major topics in these two fields.
The underlying rationale for the selection of particular topics and their presentation in this encyclopedia comes from the need to share with the educated reader topics that are rich, diverse, and deserving of closer inspection. Within these pages, we provide the overview and the detail that we feel is necessary to become well acquainted with these topics.
As in many other encyclopedias, the Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics is organized in alphabetical order, from A through Z. However, particular themes were identified early on that could be used to organize conceptually the information and the entries. These themes or major topic areas constitute the Reader's Guide, which appears on page xiii. Categories such as Experimental Methods, Qualitative Methods, and Organizations and Publications are only a few of the many that help organize the entire set of contributions.
The ProcessThe first task in the creation of a multivolume encyclopedia such as this is the development of a complete and thorough listing of the important topics in the disciplines of measurement and statistics. This process started with the identification of entries that the editor and advisory board thought were important to include. We tried to make sure that these entries included topics that would be of interest to a general readership, but we wanted to exclude terms and ideas that were too highly technical or too far removed from the interests of the everyday reader. This list was reviewed several times until we felt that it was a comprehensive set of topics that best fit the vision for the encyclopedia.
Like many other disciplines, there is a great deal of overlap between different important concepts and ideas in measurement and statistics. For example, although there is an entry titled Descriptive Statistics (which is a general overview), there is much greater detail in the entries titled Mean and Median. That overlap is fine because it provides two different, and compatible, views of the same topic and can only help reinforce one's knowledge. We hope that the crossreferences we provide will help the user understand this and get the most out of learning about any one idea, term, or procedure.
As expected, this list was edited and revised as we worked and as authors were recruited to write particular entries. Enthusiastic authors suggested new topics that might have been overlooked as well as removing topics that might have no appeal. All of these changes were taken into consideration as the final list was assembled.
The next step was to assign a length to a particular entry, which ranged from 500 words for simple definitions or biographies (such as the one for the Arithmetic Mean or Charles Babbage, respectively) to almost 4,000 words for longer, more indepth exploration for topics (such as the entry on Aptitude Tests). In between were articles that were 1,500 and 2,000 words in length. (At times, authors asked that the length be extended because they had so much information they wanted to share and they felt that the limitation on space was unwarranted. In most cases, it was not a problem to allow such an extension.)
The final step was the identification of authors. This took place through a variety of mechanisms, including the identification of individuals based on the advisory board recommendations and/or the editor's professional and personal experiences, authors of journal articles and books who focused on a particular area directly related to the entry, and referrals from other individuals who were well known in the field.
Once authors were identified and invited, and once they confirmed that they could participate, they were sent detailed instructions and given a deadline for the submission of their entry. The results, as you well know by now, after editing, layout, and other production steps, are in your hands.
How to use this ReferenceWe know the study of measurement and statistics can be less than inviting. But, as we mentioned at the beginning of this preface, and want to emphasize once again here, the ideas and tools contained in these pages are approachable and can be invaluable for understanding our very technical world and an increasing flow of information.
Although many of the ideas you read about in these pages are relatively recent, some are centuries old. Yet both kinds hold promise for your being able to better navigate the increasingly complex world of information we each face every day.
So, although many of us believe that this encyclopedia should only be consulted when a term or idea needs some clarification, why not take some time and just browse through the material and see what types of entries are offered and how useful you might find them?
As we wrote earlier, a primary goal of creating this set of volumes was to open up the broad discipline of measurement and statistics to a wider and more general audience than usual.
Take these books and find a comfortable seat in the library, browse through the topics, and read the ones that catch your eye. We're confident that you'll continue reading and looking for additional related entries, such as “Applying Ideas on Statistics and Measurement,” where you can find examples of how these ideas are applied and, in doing so, learn more about whatever interests you.
Should you want to find a topic within a particular area, consult the Reader's Guide, which organizes entries within this twovolume set into one general category. Using this tool, you can quickly move to an area or a specific topic that you find valuable and of interest.
Finally, there other elements that should be of interest.
Appendix A is a guide to basic statistics for those readers who might like a more instructional, stepbystep presentation of basic concepts in statistics and measurement. It also includes a table of critical values used in hypothesis testing and an important part of any reference in this area. These materials are taken from Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics, written by the editor and also published by Sage.
Appendix B represents a collection of some important and useful sites on the Internet that have additional information about measurement and statistics. Although such sites tend to remain stable, there may be some changes in the Internet address. If you cannot find the Web page using the address that is provided, then search for the name of the Web site using Google or another search engine.
Finally, Appendix C is a glossary of terms and concepts you will frequently come across in these volumes.
AcknowledgmentsThis has been a challenging and rewarding project. It was ambitious in scope because it tried to corral a wide and diverse set of topics within measurement and statistics into a coherent set of volumes.
First, thanks to the Advisory Board, a group of scholars in many different areas that took the time to review the list of entries and make invaluable suggestions as to what the reader might find valuable and how that topic should be approached. The Advisory Board members are very busy people who took the time to help the editor develop a list that is broad in scope and represents the most important topics in human development. You can see a complete list of who these fine people are on page vi.
My editor and my publisher at Sage Publications, Lisa Cuevas Shaw and Rolf Janke, respectively, deserve a great deal of thanks for bringing this project to me and providing the chance to make it work. They are terrific people who provide support and ideas and are always there to listen. And perhaps best of all, they get things done.
Other people also helped make this task enjoyable and helped create the useful, informative, and approachable set of volumes you hold in your hands. Among these people are Tracy Alpern, Sage senior project editor, and Bonnie Freeman, Liann Lech, and Carla Freeman, copy editors.
I'll save one of the biggest thankyous for Kristin Rasmussen, the managing editor, who managed this project in every sense of the word, including the formidable tasks of tracking entries, submissions, reviews, and resubmissions. All of this was easily accomplished with enthusiasm, initiative, and perseverance when answering endless questions through thousands of emails to hundreds of authors. She is currently a doctoral student at the University of Kansas and has an exceptionally bright future. Thank you sincerely.
And, of course, how could anything of this magnitude ever have been done without the timely execution and accurate scholarship of the contributing authors? They understood that the task at hand was to introduce educated readers (such as you) to new areas of interest in a very broad field, and without exception, they did a wonderful job. You will see throughout that their writing is clear and informative—just what material like this should be for the intelligent reader. To them, a sincere thank you and a job well done.
Finally, as always, none of this would have happened or been worth undertaking without my comrade in (almost all) ups and down and ins and outs, and my truest and best friend, Leni. Sara and Micah, versions 1.1 and 1.2, didn't hurt either.

Appendix A
Ten Commandments of Data CollectionThe following text is taken from Neil J. Salkind's bestselling introduction to statistics text, Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics, 2nd edition (2004).
Now that you know how to analyze data, you would be well served to hear something about collecting them. The data collection process can be a long and rigorous one, even if it involves only a simple, onepage questionnaire given to a group of students, parents, patients, or voters. The data collection process may very well be the most timeconsuming part of your project. But as many researchers do, this period of time is also used to think about the upcoming analysis and what it will entail.
Here they are: the ten commandments for making sure your data get collected in a way that they are usable. Unlike the original Ten Commandments, these should not be carved in stone (because they can certainly change), but if you follow them, you can avoid lots of aggravation.
Commandment 1. As you begin thinking about a research question, also begin thinking about the type of data you will have to collect to answer that question. Interview? Questionnaire? Paper and pencil? Find out how other people have done it in the past by reading the relevant journals in your area of interest and consider doing what they did.
Commandment 2. As you think about the type of data you will be collecting, think about where you will be getting the data. If you are using the library for historical data or accessing files of data that have already been collected, such as census data (available through the U.S. Census Bureau and some online), you will have few logistical problems. But what if you want to assess the interaction between newborns and their parents? The attitude of teachers toward unionizing? The age at which people over 50 think they are old? All of these questions involve needing people to provide the answers, and finding people can be tough. Start now.
Commandment 3. Make sure that the data collection forms you use are clear and easy to use. Practice on a set of pilot data so you can make sure it is easy to go from the original scoring sheets to the data collection form.
Commandment 4. Always make a duplicate copy of the data file, and keep it in a separate location. Keep in mind that there are two types of people: those who have lost their data and those who will. Keep a copy of data collection sheets in a separate location. If you are recording your data as a computer file, such as a spreadsheet, be sure to make a backup!
Commandment 5. Do not rely on other people to collect or transfer your data unless you have personally trained them and are confident that they understand the data collection process as well as you do. It is great to have people help you, and it helps keep the morale up during those long data collection sessions. But unless your helpers are competent beyond question, you could easily sabotage all your hard work and planning.
Commandment 6. Plan a detailed schedule of when and where you will be collecting your data. If you need to visit three schools and each of 50 children needs to be tested for a total of 10 minutes at each school, that is 25 hours of testing. That does not mean you can allot 25 hours from your schedule for this activity. What about travel from one school to another? What about the child who is in the bathroom when it is his turn, and you have to wait 10 minutes until he comes back to the classroom? What about the day you show up and Cowboy Bob is the featured guest… and on and on. Be prepared for anything, and allocate 25% to 50% more time in your schedule for unforeseen happenings.
Commandment 7. As soon as possible, cultivate possible sources for your subject pool. Because you already have some knowledge in your own discipline, you probably also know of people who work with the type of population you want or who might be able to help you gain access to these samples. If you are in a university community, it is likely that there are hundreds of other people competing for the same subject sample that you need. Instead of competing, why not try a more outoftheway (maybe 30 minutes away) school district or social group or civic organization or hospital, where you might be able to obtain a sample with less competition?
Commandment 8. Try to follow up on subjects who missed their testing session or interview. Call them back and try to reschedule. Once you get in the habit of skipping possible participants, it becomes too easy to cut the sample down to too small a size. And you can never tell—the people who drop out might be dropping out for reasons related to what you are studying. This can mean that your final sample of people is qualitatively different from the sample you started with.
Commandment 9. Never discard the original data, such as the test booklets, interview notes, and so forth. Other researchers might want to use the same database, or you may have to return to the original materials for further information.

How to use this table: Compute the t value test statistic.
 Compare the obtained t value to the critical value listed in this table. Be sure you have calculated the number of degrees of freedom correctly and you have selected an appropriate level of significance.
 If the obtained value is greater than the critical or tabled value, the null hypothesis (that the means are equal) is not the most attractive explanation for any observed differences.
 If the obtained value is less than the critical or table value, the null hypothesis is the most attractive explanation for any observed differences.

How to use this table: Compute the F value.
 Determine the number of degrees of freedom for the numerator (k–1) and the number of degrees of freedom for the denominator (n–k).
 Locate the critical value by reading across to locate the degrees of freedom in the numerator and down to locate the degrees of freedom in the denominator. The critical value is at the intersection of this column and row.
 If the obtained value is greater than the critical or tabled value, the null hypothesis (that the means are equal to one another) is not the most attractive explanation for any observed differences.
 If the obtained value is less than the critical or tabled value, the null hypothesis is the most attractive explanation for any observed differences.

How to use this table: Compute the value of the correlation coefficient.
 Compare the value of the correlation coefficient with the critical value listed in this table.
 If the obtained value is greater than the critical or tabled value, the null hypothesis (that the correlation coefficient is equal to 0) is not the most attractive explanation for any observed differences.
 If the obtained value is less than the critical or tabled value, the null hypothesis is the most attractive explanation for any observed differences.

How to use this table: Compute the χ2 value.
 Determine the number of degrees of freedom for the rows (R–1) and the number of degrees of freedom for the columns (C–1). If it's a onedimensional table, then you have only columns.
 Locate the critical value by locating the degrees of freedom in the titled (df) column, and under the appropriate column for level of significance, read across.
 If the obtained value is greater than the critical or tabled value, the null hypothesis (that the frequencies are equal to one another) is not the most attractive explanation for any observed differences.
 If the obtained value is less than the critical or tabled value, the null hypothesis is the most attractive explanation for any observed differences.

Internet Sites about StatisticsWhat follows is a listing of Internet sites and a brief description of each that focus on the general areas of statistics and measurement. Also included are sites where data (on many different topics) have been collected and can be accessed.
As you use these, keep in mind the following:
 Internet addresses (known as URLs) often change, as does the content. If one of these Internet addresses does not work, search for the name of the site using any search engine.
 Any Internet site is only as good as its content. For example, N or N − 1 might be given as the correct denominator for a formula, and although that might be true, you should double check any information with another Internet resource or a book on the subject.
 If you find something that is inaccurate on a site, contact the Webmaster or the author of the site and let him or her know that a correction needs to be made.

Name: Probability and Quintile Applets Where to find it: http://www.stat.stanford.edu/~naras/jsm/FindProbability.html
Applets are small programs that can visually represent an idea or a process very effectively. These two, by Balasubramanian Narasimhan from Stanford University, do such things as compute the probability of a score under the normal curve (see Figure 1 on the following page) and calculate the quintiles (fifths) of a distribution. They are easy to use, fun to play with, and very instructional. You can find another similar applet by Gary McClelland at http://psych.colorado.edu/~mcclella/java/normal/handleNormal.html
Figure 1 Probability AppletName: FedStats
Where to find it: http://www.fedstats.gov/

Name: Random Birthday Applet
Where to find it: http://wwwstat.stanford.edu/~susan/surprise/Birthday.html
This is an incredible illustration of how probability works. You enter the number of birthdays you want generated at random, and the laws of probability should operate so that in a group of 30 such random selections, the odds are very high that there will be at least two matches for the same birthday. Try it—it works.

The following text is taken from Neil J. Salkind's bestselling introduction to statistics text, Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics, 2nd edition (2004).
Pages and pages of every type of statistical resource you can want has been creatively assembled by Professor David W. Stockburger at http://www.psychstat.smsu.edu/scripts/dws148f/statisticsresourcesmain.asp. This site receives the gold medal of statistics sites. Don't miss it.
For example, take a look at Berrie's page (at http://www.huizen.dds.n~berrie/) and see some QuickTime (short movies) of the effects of changing certain data points on the value of the mean and standard deviation. Or, look at the different home pages that have been created by instructors for courses offered around the country. Or, look at all of the different software packages that can do statistical analysis.
Want to draw a histogram? How about a table of random numbers? A samplesize calculator? The Statistical Calculators page at http://www.stat.ucla.edu/calculators/ has just about every type (more than 15) of calculator and table you could need. Enough to carry you through any statistics course that you might take and even more.
For example, you can click on the Random Permutations link and complete the two boxes (as you see in Figure 2 for 2 random permutations of 100 integers), and you get the number of permutations you want. This is very handy when you need a table of random numbers for a specific number of participants so you can assign them to groups.
Figure 1 Generating a Set of Random NumbersThe History of Statistics page located at http://www.Anselm.edu/homepage/jpitocch/biostatshist.html contains portraits and bibliographies of famous statisticians and a time line of important contributions to the field of statistics. So, do names like Bernoulli, Galton, Fisher, and Spearman pique your curiosity? How about the development of the first test between two averages during the early 20th century? It might seem a bit boring until you have a chance to read about the people who make up this field and their ideas—in sum, pretty cool ideas and pretty cool people.
SurfStat Australia (at http://www.anu.edu.au/nceph/surfstat/surfstathome/surfstat.html) is the online component of a basic stat course taught at the University of Newcastle, Australia, but has grown far beyond just the notes originally written by Annette Dobson in 1987, and updated over several years' use by Anne Young, Bob Gibberd, and others. Among other things, SurfStat contains a complete interactive statistics text. Besides the text, there are exercises, a list of other statistics sites on the Internet, and a collection of Java applets (cool little programs you can use to work with different statistical procedures).
This online tutorial with 18 lessons, at http://www.davidmlane.com/hyperstat/index.html, offers nicely designed and userfriendly coverage of the important basic topics. What we really liked about the site was the glossary, which uses hypertext to connect different concepts to one another. For example, in Figure 3, you can see the definition of descriptive statistics also linked to other glossary terms, such as mean, standard deviation, and box plot. Click on any of those and zap! you're there.
Figure 1 Sample HyperStat ScreenThere are data all over the place, ripe for the picking. Here are just a few. What to do with these? Download them to be used as examples in your work or as examples of analysis that you might want to do, and you can use these as a model.
 Statistical Reference Datasets at http://www.itl.nist.gov/div898/strd/
 United States Census Bureau (a huge collection and a gold mine of data) at http://factfinder.census.gov/servlet/DatasetMainPageServlet?_lang=en
 The Data and Story Library (http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/DASL/) with great annotations about the data (look for the stories link)
 Tons of economic data sets at Growth Data Sets (at http://www.bris.ac.uk/Depts/Economics/Growth/datasets.htm)
Then there are all the data sets that are available through the federal government (besides the census). Your tax money supports it, so why not use it? For example, there's FEDSTATS (at http://www.fedstats.gov/), where more than 70 agencies in the U.S. federal government produce statistics of interest to the public. The Federal Interagency Council on Statistical Policy maintains this site to provide easy access to the full range of statistics and information produced by these agencies for public use. Here you can find country profiles contributed by the (boo!) CIA; public school student, staff, and faculty data (from the National Center for Education Statistics); and the Atlas of the United States Mortality (from the National Center for Health Statistics). What a ton of data!
The University of Michigan's Statistical Resources on the Web (at http://www.lib.umich.edu/govdocs/stats.html) has hundreds and hundreds of resource links, including those to banking, book publishing, the elderly, and, for those of you with allergies, pollen count. Browse, search for what exactly it is that you need—no matter, you are guaranteed to find something interesting.
At http://mathforum.org/workshops/sum96/data.collections/datalibrary/data.set6.html, you can find a data set including the 1994 National League Baseball Salaries or the data on TV, Physicians, and Life Expectancy. Nothing earthshaking, just fun to download and play with.
The World Wide Web Virtual Library: Statistics is the name of the page, but the oneword title is misleading because the site (from the good people at the University of Florida at http://www.stat.ufl.edu/vlib/statistics.html) includes information on just about every facet of the topic, including data sources, job announcements, departments, divisions and schools of statistics (a huge description of programs all over the world), statistical research groups, institutes and associations, statistical services, statistical archives and resources, statistical software vendors and software, statistical journals, mailing list archives, and related fields. Tons of great information is available here. Make it a stop along the way.
Statistics on the Web at http://www.maths.uq.edu.au/~gks/webguide/datasets.html is another location that's just full of information and references that you can easily access. Here, you'll find information on professional organizations, institutes and consulting groups, educational resources, Web courses, online textbooks, publications and publishers, statistics book lists, softwareoriented pages, mailing lists and discussion groups, and even information on statisticians and other statistical people.
Figure 1 Selecting the Correct Stat Technique to Use—Just a Few Clicks AwayIf you do ever have to teach statistics, or even tutor fellow students, this is one place you'll want to visit: http://noppa5.pc.helsinki.fi/links.html. It contains hundreds of resources on every topic that was covered in Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics and more. You name it and it's here: regression, demos, history, Sila (a demonstration of inference), an interactive online tutorial, statistical graphics, handouts to courses, teaching materials, journal articles, and even quizzes! Whew, what a deal. There tends to be a lot of material that may not be suited to what you are doing in this class, but this wide net has certainly captured some goodies.
http://Statistics.com (http://www.statistics.com) has it all—a wealth of information on courses, software, statistical methods, jobs, books, and even a homework helper. For example, if you want to know about free Webbased stat packages, click on that link on the lefthand side of the page. Here's one (see Figure 4) from Dr. Bill Trochim…. You just click your way through answering questions to get the answer to what type of analysis should be used.
