    So there is no standard rule.. only gut feeling?
    If I have a P value of .05 or greater, that tells me that I have a normal distribution, but is there a similiar gauge to tell me when a distribution is so normal that it violates the random nature of reality?  If you had a P value of 1.0 for a large sample of people’s age distribution, wouldn’t yo…[Read more]
