GEOSTATS: Skewness and Kurtosis
- I need a little help and I presently am in the process of moving from Virginia
to the state of Washington and do not have access to my books or notes.
I believe that I read somewhere that if a distribution is analyzied and the
Skewness is between 1.8 and 2.2 and the Kurtosis is between 8.6 and 9.4 the
distribution is may be exponential.
I also seem to remember that if the Skewness is between -0.3 and +0.3 and the
Kurtosis is between 4 and 4.4 the distribution may be Log.
Finally, if the Skewness if between -.3 and +0.3 and the Kurtosis is between
1.6 and 2 the distribution is likely to be uniform.
Can anyone verify this information?
Does anyone know where I might get a reference regarding using the Skewness
and Kurtosis to help identify the likely distribution for a set of data?
Does anyone know of any other distributions that might be identifiable by
using the Skewness and Kurtosis?
Thanks in advance,
Dr. Robert C. Knodt
