As had been noted in §5 and §6, experimental research can be either qualitative or quantitative. A necessary element of quantitative experimental research is the performance of statistical measurement, which is defined as obtaining statistical estimates of the probability characteristics (statistics, for short) of random processes, with a known degree of accuracy. We will examine below some aspects of statistical measurement, as defined here. We will use designations and terms adopted in Chapter II. The material of this chapter is based on [3,8,9,18,21,23,24].
