Join selection factor
||This article provides insufficient context for those unfamiliar with the subject. (October 2009)|
O'Connell (2005, 5.10) defines this as "[t]he percentage (or fraction, whichever you choose) of records in one file that will be joined with records of another file". This can be calculated when two database tables are to be joined. It is primarily concerned with query optimisation.
