English term or phrase: estimand
"Statistical analysis: introduction
Intention-to-treat principle
(primary estimand)
On-treatment principle
(secondary estimand)

The X programme used two estimands.
The first followed the intention-to-treat principle, and was defined as the primary estimand.
The second followed the on-treatment principle, and was called the secondary estimand."

I can't figure out how to translate estimand here.

It refers to the populations studied so I was thinking just saying "population estimée".
"primary estimand" = "population estimée principale"
"secondary estimand" = "population estimée secondaire"

But I don't find much info when searching about estimand.
