This guide gives the rudiments of identification of some of the most common and useful frequency distributions.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D13 on Textiles, this guide was withdrawn in March 2009 because D13 no longer has the expertise to maintain and statistical standards are being maintained by Committee E11.
1.1 This guide gives the rudiments of identification of some of the most common and useful frequency distributions. It does not give rigorous identification. To achieve exactitude, the procedures similar to those given by Shapiro should be used.
1.2 This guide provides a key to identify frequency distributions.
1.3 This guide gives ways to select the proper transformation to use to transform a particular set of data to one which can be modeled by the normal distribution, if such a transformation can be found at all.
1.4 This guide includes the following topics:

|Normal Frequency Distribution |
|Sample Average Distribution |
