Excerpt: This appendix provides guidance on the statistical analysis of waste testing and environmental monitoring data. You should select the statistical test during the Data Quality Assessment (DQA) phase after you review the data quality objectives, the sampling design, and the characteristics of the data set. See guidance provided in Section 8. The statistical methods in this appendix are appropriate for use in evaluating sample analysis results when comparing constituent concentrations in a waste or environmental medium to a fixed standard. Users of this guidance may have other objectives such as comparing two populations, detecting trends, or characterizing the spatial pattern of contamination. If so, review other guidance or seek assistance from a professional environmental statistician. Note that not all RCRA standards require the waste handler to use sampling, analysis, and statistical tests to measure compliance. However, if sampling and analysis is used by the waste handler to measure compliance with a RCRA standard, then statistical methods may be used to help quantify uncertainty associated with the decisions made using the data – even where there is no regulatory obligation to do so (see also Sections 2 and 3).
