Re: Summary of method.

No. It is not right place to post. You should post it at SAS Statistical Procedures My thought is most of statistical model request variables confirm to NORMAL distribution , so Skewness is not acceptable. You need LOG() or Box-Cox transformation to make it looks like NORMAL distribution.
