Title: Statistical Fundamentals for Wood Engineering
Description:
This article is a primer on statistics for wood engineering
professionals. Introduced are general statistical
concepts, handy equations and references, and rules of
thumb that we have found useful. Topics include sampling,
mathematical notation, statistical and graphical
description of data, common probability distributions,
confidence statements and linear regression. Textbooks
can be found on each of these subjects. Our goal is to
sift out of the immense field of statistics some basic concepts
which we have employed in wood engineering,
without getting bogged down in theory.
