margin of error

  

Definition

Analytical technique that accounts for the number of acceptable errors in an experiment. The margin of error is put into place so that an individual can review results and then determine the level of accuracy of the experiment by taking this + or - margin of error into consideration. A smaller margin of error indicates trustworthy results and a larger margin of error means the results are not considered as accurate.
