robust estimation

A procedure for estimating statistics, e.g., mean and variance, that performs well when there are departures (outliers) from the ideal conditions that have been postulated for the model.

NOTE    The estimate of the sample mean and/or variance is often made robust by a rejection-of-outliers procedure or the use of a trimmed mean.
