standard error

n.
A generalized notion of standard deviation, used to characterize the dispersion of a statistic (such as the sample mean) calculated from randomly sampled data.

Just as I described the differences between standard deviation and standard error in this editorial, I plan to help readers navigate this increasingly complex range of statistical testing being reported in results sections in JVIB in future Statistical Sidebars.
4) The estimator of the standard error of the predicted value of y, conditional on a specific vector of x values ([x.
In SOI reports, the standard error is not directly presented.
A standard error of an estimate is a statistical measure that indicates how the estimate from the sample compares to the result from a complete enumeration.
This estimate of standard error for Ventana includes data for five plants that established before 1800 and 32 plants that established before 1850.
Table 4 Percentage Contribution of Exchange Rate in Standard Error of Current Account Balance Bangladesh Percentage Contribution to Standard Error of Current Account Without Oil Price Forecasted Exchange Current Period Standard Error Rate Account 1 0.
As a result, the November CPI release, which is based upon October data, will have a much bigger standard error due to the smaller sample.
12) the effect of missing data and differential item functioning on latent trait estimates from two polytomous Rasch models and different imputation methods (complete-case analysis, mean substitution, hot-decking, and multiple imputation based on multivariate normal) were compared using the MCAR mechanism, and they found that the presence of data associated with missingness increases the standard error of latent trait estimates but does not impact the bias in theta estimates in the MCAR scenario.
If the null hypothesis of exogeneity is rejected, OLS estimates are inconsistent and conclusions about causal effects should be based on IV estimates; failure to reject the null means that OLS estimates may be interpreted as causal effects are preferable because of their smaller standard errors.
The resulting estimates are likely to be similar in magnitude to those that would be generated by the analogous 2SLS regression, but standard errors will be slightly smaller.
The chart in figure 4 summarizes the progression of predictive modeling from highest to lowest standard error.
The generalized variance parameters, which are published upon release of public use microdata, are incorporated into standard error calculations.
