hey pf!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i am wondering, if you're looking at two data sets and each set has different skewness levels (i.e. perhaps set 1 has a skewness of .4 and set 2 has a skewness of .5) do we say that these two are relatively un-skewed or highly skewed (or perhaps one of each)?

in other words, how do i compare levels of skewness?

i have the same question for kurtosis, if you could explain?

thanks a ton!
