Ask Custom Question

The majority of the data is normally distributed if there are enough subjects. For instance, if you collected test scores of only a few honor students, the data will most likely not be normally distributed because you would have a sample that did not represent the entire population. But the identical test scores (for honor students) collected from all schools in a state will result in a normal distribution.

Identify an example of a population that you would expect to be normally distributed. Explain why, according to you, it would be normally distributed. Then, describe a subset of the population you identified and explain why it would not be normally distributed and what would the distribution look like.
