For a random study estimate, what is the expected value of the absolute systematic error? Provides a single summary value for a null distribution. The expected systematic error of a null distribution is equal to its mean (mu), and is insensitive to the spread of the null distribution (sigma).
Taking the absolute value of the expected systematic error we can express both mean and spread of the estimated null distribution.
