# What is correction factor?

**correction factor**(plural

**correction factors**) A

**factor**that is multiplied with the result of an equation to correct for a known amount of systematic error.

Moreover, how do you calculate correction factor?

**CALCULATING** YOUR SENSITIVITY **FACTOR**/**CORRECTION FACTOR** Divide: 1700 by Total Daily Insulin. This is your Sensitivity **Factor**/**Correction Factor**. 1700/30 = 50. This **Correction Factor** means that 1 unit of insulin will lower blood glucose by approximately 50mg/dl.

**correction factor**is

**used**when you

**use**a continuous probability distribution to approximate a discrete probability distribution. For example, when you want to

**use**the normal to approximate a binomial.

In this way, what is correction factor in statistics?

**Correction factor** is defined / given by. Square of the gross total of observed values /Total number of observed values. The sum of squares (SS), used in **ANOVA**, is actually the sum of squares of the deviations of observed values from their mean.

The relative detector response **factor**, commonly referred to as response **factor**, expresses the sensitivity of a detector relative to a standard substance. The **correction factor** is the reciprocal of the response **factor**."
