MgO thin films were prepared through electron-beam deposition onto ITO-coated glass substrates in order to measure electrical, dielectric, and microstructural properties. Design of experiments was performed in this study with the aim to understanding of the effects of processing variables, e.g., substrate temperature and filament current of an e-beam evaporator statistically. Leakage currents, relative dielectric constants, and diffraction intensities of MgO thin films were analyzed statistically, following the analysis procedure provided in the design of experiments. The leakage current level of MgO thin films has been found to be statistically significant at the level of $\alpha=0.1$.
