Positive Skewness

- It is the tendency of a described frequency curve leaning towards the left. In a positively skewed distribution, the long tail extended to the right.

In this distribution one must note the given:

i.  The mean is generally bigger than the median and mode

ii.  The median always occurs among the mean and mode

iii.  There are more observations below the mean than above the mean

This frequency distribution as represented in the skewed distribution curve is characteristic of the age allocations in the developing countries
