GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
German term or phrase:
direction of the response / nature of the response
German to English translations [PRO] Science - Mathematics & Statistics / crime statistics
German term or phrase:Reaktionsrichtung
From an academic article discussing statistical analysis of variables that influence a prosecutor to dismiss criminal charges:
Dieses Kriterium (Alter)sagt aber noch wenig über die jeweilige Reaktionsrichtung aus, sondern stellt vielmehr die Nichtanwendung des § 31 a BtMG auf Jugendliche oder Heranwachsende in einigen Bundesländern dar.
In the web I find "reaction direction" as a definition, but only in the context of chemistry. Does anyone know if I can employ the same translation for statistics?
Thanks in advance for any help; it is much appreciated!
