French term or phrase:analyse comparative en déviation par rapport à la moyenne
"Nous avons réalisé une analyse comparative en déviation par rapport à la moyenne."
........................
I just need to make sure that 'analyse comparative en déviation' isn't a very specific term that I haven't been able to find.

Variance is variation
déviation is deviation
NOTE TO COLLEAGUES
If the French has incorrect working re the concepts in statistics, it is not up to the translator to correct that. The French says what is says. It does not use the variance which also exists in French.

I concede that MEAN is wrong
my revised final is:
FINAL: comparative standard deviation analysis...
that\'s what I now think it is....deviation par rapport a la moyenne
a standard deviaiton where moyenne is the standard
I think you hit the proverbial nail, Jane, after a few tries :)
Note to Laurel: while analysis of variance would otherwise be excellent, the way I understand the French is that they are performing a comparative analysis in deviation from the average – and “analysis of variance” doesn’t quite cover that mouthful! Thanks though, and thanks to everyone. (Why do my questions always provoke such interesting debates?) *big smile*
A comparative analysis showed a deviation from the mean
Explanation: This could be the "standard deviation"

comparative analysis of deviation with respect to the mean
Explanation: I don't think it's a specific term, but then my knowledge of statistics is rusty.
I am assume that are comparing analysis of variation from the mean in two separate samples.

Karen,
I think you should go with Laurel\'s answer. I think we are trying to express the same idea, but I think she got the specific technical term right. It sounds like something I vaguely recalling hear in discussions of comparing elctron energies to positive ion energies in the solar wind. The electron energies do not follow a Gaussian distribution so quantities like average or standard deviation are not useful for comparison.

Explanation: According to "Basic Statistical Methods" (Downie and Heath), an analysis of variance is used to compare the means of several groups to determine heterogeneity. (Per John P. Boyd, Ph.D.)
