parameter

  

Definition

Definable, measurable, and constant or variable characteristic, dimension, property, or value, selected from a set of data (or population) because it is considered essential to understanding a situation (or in solving a problem). In comparison, a perimeter sets the external boundary of a situation but does not help in assessing it, and a statistic is a measure of a sample and not that of a population.
