A measure of the statistical accuracy of an estimate, equal to the standard deviation of the theoretical distribution of a large population of such estimates.

‘For the statistical analysis, means, standard deviations, and standard errors were computed.’

‘The standard errors of the model estimates were adjusted for the clustering of patients within hospitals.’

‘Ten simulations were run to obtain standard errors of estimates.’

‘We were unable to derive a method to provide standard errors for these estimates.’

‘The graph shows the averages and standard errors of the relative translation levels in three independent experiments.’
