Survivorship bias

The tendency for failed companies to be excluded from 

Performance

 studies due to the fact that they no longer exist. 

Survivorship bias

 causes the results of some studies to skew higher because only companies which were successful enough to survive until the end of the period are included. Similarly, mutual 

Fund

 performance may be misleading due to 

Survivorship bias

 if the 

Fund

 family tends to merge or discontinue underperforming funds.
