offset


Explanation:
'offset', or perhaps 'compensated for'
It sounds like they're taking the (theoretical) calculated mean value and turning it into a real number (into the list/data?) which will then need to be offset by a correction value (in their calculations).

I'm not quite sure of the context here, but hope this helps.
Good Luck!
