Skewness

 
template<class T> doubleskewnessintn
T*data )
Skewness is a measure of symmetry, or more precisely, the lack of symmetry. A distribution, or data set, is symmetric if it looks the same to the left and right of the center point. For univariate data x_1, x_2, ..., x_N, the formula for skewness is: where \overline{x} is the aritmetic mean, \sigma is the standard deviation, and N is the number of data points.

The skewness for a normal distribution is zero, and any symmetric data should have a skewness near zero. Negative values for the skewness indicate data that are skewed left and positive values for the skewness indicate data that are skewed right.

Example 1

#include <codecogs/statistics/moments/skewness.h>
#include <iostream>
int main()
{
  float x[5] = {3.4 , 7.1 , 1.5 , 8.6 , 4.9};
  double skew = Stats::Moments::skewness<float>(5, x);
  std::cout << "The population skewness is: " << skew << std::endl;
  return 0;
}
Output:
The population skewness is:-0.0107687

Parameters

nthe size of the population
datathe actual population data given as an array

Returns

the skewness of the given set of data
