Quick Reference

The normal distribution is one of the key distributions providing the basis for probability statistics, so that when a particular distribution is not normal, some transformation of the data may be attempted so as to achieve a normal distribution—for example charting the logarithms of values instead of the values themselves. This is known as normalizing the distribution.
