Absolute bias,

standard error estimates, and coverage rates for [[beta].sub.1] by method and percent of outlying observations appear in the bottom panel of Table 5.

For statement no.13, a mean of 2.07,

standard error of 0.143 and standard deviation of 1.482, shows that topics on feedback and error correction are not included in teachers professional courses.

The

standard errors for monthly natural gas volume and price estimates by State are given in Table C1.

An increase in the

standard error of the CPI reduces its usefulness to policymakers.

The missing data simulation, multiple imputation with the RF method, pooling of the disability estimates and their

standard errors, and scatter plots were performed using functions written in the R software package version 2.13.0 (The R Foundation for Statistical Computing).

While the discussion that follows concentrates on the effects of alcohol consumption and results from specification tests, appendix 1 (for binge drinking) shows the IV coefficients and marginal effect

standard errors of all explanatory variables on both absenteeism measures.

GE Infinia camera at 10 cm shows the linearity behaviour with variance 2.523 x [10.sup.-4] and

standard error 0.0143.

The chart in figure 4 begins with a universal OAN model with the highest

standard error of 6.7 [cm.sup.3]/100 g, as shown in figure 5.

To assess SRS-based variances relative to GVF- and replicate weight-based variances to calculate

standard errors, a ratio of the

standard error when adjusting for the complex sample design to the

standard error under a SRS assumption is calculated for each subgroup.

The continuation analysis found evidence of a bilingual education effect at p < .05, but this result was sensitive to the method of

standard error estimation.

The authors cover descriptive statistics (the histogram, average and standard deviation, normal approximation for data, measurement error and plotting points and lines), correlation and regression (including the RMS error for regression and the regression line), probability (chance, the binomial formula), chance variability (the law of averages, expected value and

standard error, and normal approximation for probability histograms), sampling (errors, accuracy of percentages and case studies), chance models, including those used in genetics and tests of significance, including the chi-square test.
