statistical model

(redirected from Statistical modeling)

sta·tis·ti·cal mod·el

a formal representation for a class of processes that allows a means of analyzing results from experimental studies, such as the Poisson model or the general linear model; it need not propose a process literally interpretable in the context of the individual case.
