Bias

Description

The tendency of an estimate to differ from the true population value. -- Bias is the amount that the estimate can be expected to differ from a true population value because of some quality of a measurement device, sample selection method or other aspect of survey methodology that tends to result in a misrepresentation of what is being measured in a particular direction. Sometimes a small amount of known bias are tolerated because of other gains. (e.g. see special treatment)
