Calculates how symmetrical the data-set is, zero indicates perfect symmetry.

=0 is normal.
<0 the lower the Skewness value is the more skewness is to the right.

What can cause Skewness

  1. Lifetime data is often not normal distributed (wear out)
  2. Data is close to zero or a other limit
  3. Mix of more distributions
  4. With a small sample size the skewness value can not be trusted
