William John Youden (April 12, 1900 – March 31, 1971) was a statistician who formulated new statistical techniques in statistical analysis and in designs for experimenters. He developed the "Youden square", an incomplete block design developed from a 1937 paper, "Use of Incomplete Block Replications in Estimating Tobacco Mosaic Virus". He also helped to introduce the concept of restricted randomization, which he called constrained randomization.
The concept was introduced by Frank Yates (1948) and William J. Youden (1972) "as a way of avoiding bad spatial patterns of treatments in designed experiments."
In 1943, he was assigned as a bombing analyst at the Bombing Accuracy Subsection of the Operational Research Section (ORS) at the Headquarters Eighth Air Force division of the United States Air Force, alongside other mathematicians like Frank M. Stewart, J. W. T. Youngs, Ray E. Gilman, and W. J. Youden. He later received the Medal of Freedom.
The American Statistical Association bestows the W. J. Youden Award in Interlaboratory Testing to authors "of publications that make outstanding contributions to the design and/or analysis of interlaboratory tests or describe ingenious approaches to the planning and evaluation of data from such tests." The award is presented each year at the Joint Statistical Meetings.

The index was suggested by W.J. Youden in 1950 as a way of summarising the performance of a diagnostic test. Its value ranges from -1 to 1, and has a zero value when a diagnostic test gives the same proportion of positive results for groups with and without the disease, i.e the test is useless. A value of 1 indicates that there are no false positives or false negatives, i.e. the test is perfect. The index gives equal weight to false positive and false negative values, so all tests with the same value of the index give the same proportion of total misclassified results.
