Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm fitting a distribution to the starting times of the first car journey in the day. I have a sample of 3,000 journey starting times. I am assuming that this sample represents the population well.

I'm fitting a non parametric distribution.

But my question is, should I fit a 1st order or 2nd order distribution?

It should be second order correct? because there is uncertainty about the parameters?

Thanks
