A literature survey was made in order to provide an outline of fundamental statistical definitions, formulas and methods which are used by the paper technician. These methods, if properly applied, would furnish valuable information as to the accuracy of test values, significance of differences and merits of various operations.

A demonstration is made of the application of statistical methods to test data obtained from samples of unbleached kraft pulp in the form of wet laps, air-dry pulp and soaked pulp. The analysis was devoted to the study of strength variations, uniformity and duplicability of handsheets produced from the three samples.
