 Portuguese term or phrase: DMS Uma abreviatura ao fim de uma tabela de dados e usada juntamente com CV (Coeficiente de Variação ) que eu traduzi “VC (Variation Coefficient)”. Suspeito que DMS seja outra abreviatura usada na estatística (tem valores de 0,8 a 1,2 ). A este respeito haverá um site na Internet com siglas e abreviaturas usadas em português ? Agradecia qualquer ajuda, Norberto Martins
