REACH Dictionary

A skewed distribution refers to a distribution that is asymmetrical and not centered on the mean. Skewed distributions may be positively skewed, where the ""tail"" extends to the right, or negatively skewed, where the ""tail"" extends to the left. Skewed distributions indicate that deviations will be higher or lower than the normal distribution's mean.
