Chapter 17. Functions for Analyzing Stat... > Analyzing Distributions of Data

Analyzing Distributions of Data

In statistics, a collection of measurements is called a distribution. Excel has several methods that you can use to analyze distributions: built-in statistical functions, the sample and population statistical functions, or the rank and percentile functions together with the Rank and Percentile tool.

Note

You can also analyze distributions using the Descriptive Statistics and Histogram tools, both of which are included in the Analysis Toolpak add-in. For more information about using the Analysis Toolpak tools, see “Using the Analysis Toolpak Data Analysis Tools” on page 477.
