## Look up: skewness

1. Skewness
Occurs when a distribution is not symmetrical about its mean. A distribution is symmetrical when its median, mean, and mode are equal. A positively skewed distribution occurs when the mean exceeds the median. A negatively skewed distribution occurs when the mean is less than the median. These condit...

8. Skewness
In probability theory and statistics, skewness is a measure of the asymmetry of the probability distribution of a real-valued random variable.
