1. ## Skewness and Kurtosis

Q. 87 Skewness and kurtosis are two commonly listed values when you run any software’s descriptive statistics function. The skewness parameter measures the relative sizes of the two tails. The kurtosis parameter is a measure of the combined weight of the tails relative to the rest of the distribution. Since these numbers appear automatically, it is natural to wonder how they might be used in practice. What purpose do these shape statistics serve in any data analysis?
