Examples of Skewed Distribution

Skewed distribution is derived from probability theory. It refers to a range of values for a variable, which is described as 'skewed' if the variation isn't even between measures. A negative skew means that the 'probability density' (statistical likelihood) is longer (higher valued) on the left side of a series of measures expressed as a graph relative to a mean figure. A positive skew refers to measures on the right of the mean.
