Since R is always positive, it was a given that the distribution is not Gaussian. There are some common distributions that are always positive. The log-normal distribution might be a good fit with the correct parameters. It would be interesting to calculate the mean and variance of the associated ln(R) values and see if the log-normal distribution with those parameters is a good fit.
