INTRODUCTION: SKEWNESS
?Measure of lack of symmetry
?Absence of symmetry
?Extreme values in either side of a distribution
?If the two sides do not coincide, distribution is said to be
asymmetric
?A distribution that is asymmetric with respect to a
vertical axis is said to be skewed.

SYMMETRIC DISTRIBUTION
Department Of Master of Business Administration
?A distribution is symmetric if it can be folded along the 
vertical axis so that the two side coincide
?If the distribution is symmetric, the mean, the median, and 
the mode are equal and are located at the same position along 
the horizontal axis

Distribution

TWO TYPES OF SKEWNESS
Positively Skewed or Skewed to the Right 
Distribution
? Distribution tapers more to the right than to the 
left
? Has a longer tail to the right compared to a much 
shorter left tail
? Values are more concentrated below than above the 
mean
