statistical interaction A statistically established relationship between two (or more) variables such that the values of one vary in some systematic way with the values of another. Statistical interactions between two or more independent variables can significantly complicate certain types of multivariate analyses where independent variables are assumed to be independent of (orthogonal to) each other. See also MULTICOLLINEARITY.
