While sometimes used interchangeably with the term "drift", in geostatistics the two are considered separate. The term is usually reserved to denote the deterministic representation obtained by the use of Trend Surface Analysis, i.e, a functional representation for spatially located data (usually taken as a polynomial in the position coordinates). The "trend" is obtained by a least squares fit to the data. As an estimator to the mean of a random function it is sub-optimal. If the residuals from trend surface analysis are used to model the variogram, a biased variogram estimator results.

This refers to the status of the result of a statistical test that produces a p-value marginally greater than alpha. In this case, the result can be said to be a trend towrds significance. For example, if alpha is 0.05 and the obtained p-value of a test was 0.08, then this value can be referred to as a trend. Although the result is not statistically significant it can be mentioned in a report since if the hypothesis is an important one and there are recognised methodological problems in the type of study being carried out, it suggests that a minor change might yield a significant result in a future replication.
