Statistical Model

Definition(s)

A mathematical abstraction of the Document Population that removes irrelevant characteristics while largely preserving those of interest for a particular purpose. For the purpose of computing Recall, a Statistical Model need only consider whether or not the Documents are Relevant, and whether or not the Documents are Coded Relevant, not any other characteristics of the Documents. 1
