August 2017 Member Webinar: Making Sense of Statistical Distributions

by guest

Many who work with statistics are already functionally familiar with the normal distribution, and maybe even the binomial distribution.

These common distributions are helpful in many applications, but what happens when they just don’t work?

This webinar will cover a number of statistical distributions, including the:

  • Poisson and negative binomial distributions (especially useful for count data)
  • Multinomial distribution (for responses with more than two categories)
  • Beta distribution (for continuous percentages)
  • Gamma distribution (for right-skewed continuous data)
  • Bernoulli and binomial distributions (for probabilities and proportions)
  • And more!

We’ll also explore the relationships among statistical distributions, including those you may already use, like the normal, t, chi-squared, and F distributions.


Note: This webinar is an exclusive benefit for members of the Statistically Speaking Membership Program.
