The statistical measure "standard error of mean" (which in swedish is called
"average fault" - if you translate it), has nothing to do with average or mean,
The number gives a standard deviation depending on the number of observations
you´ve done, where 68% of the observations lies, or??
Why this "misleading" name - or have I misunderstood the whole point???
