Hi All ~ I'm dealing with a contienous variable whose distrubution looks as shown in the two figures. Which tranformation procedure would you recommnend for this kind of distrubution?
That is an interesting plot. Even the log10 values show an extreme skew. Is there a possibility that these are maximum values for something? If so, you may want to look at a Weibull distribution or some other generalized extreme value distribution. a ln(ln (x)) transformation might be useful. I don't know if TRANSREG will hande this, though.
It's hard to see what your doing now, since the forum doesn't sort the responses. So no way to tell which reply goes with which post. In the future please just do one response. This isn't your fault - limitation of the forum.
Did you post your original distribution? Also, what is the variable, in laymans terms. Context can help with deciding what type of transformation to use, and there are certain standard transformation in diff industries.
