Glossary of Statistical Terms

Great suggestions. Done. I did not add anything for “general linear model” but did for “generalized linear model”. Thanks for joining datamethods!

Thanks to my colleague @SpiekerStats we now also have a definition of causal inference.

Excellent addition. I think that the reference to Judea Pearl should be added to the references section at the end.

To the paper I link to or is there a better reference from him?

That paper is very comprehensive, readable, and freely available so I think it serves as a great reference.

It would be great to add the definition of the likelihood or likelihood function. I am desperately looking for a good definition!

Great idea. Done. I added also definitions for probability density functions, and added to the definition for maximum likelihood estimator. Any suggestions for improving these definitions are most welcomed.
