Kurtosis

Definition of Kurtosis:

Kurtosis is a measure of the tails, or outliers, of a distribution or data set. Large kurtosis means that the distribution or data is more outlier-prone than the normal distribution, while small kurtosis means that the distribution is less outlier-prone than the normal distribution.
