Quick Reference

A numerical value given to the expectation that a particular event will occur. Although in scientific usage it is normally reckoned on a scale of 0 (for impossibility) to 1 (certainty), in forecasts to the general public, probability is usually specified as a percentage, 100 per cent being certainty.
