I would like to know how to interpret this distribution graph. I have been doing an exercise from the book called 'Python for Finance Cookbook' by Eryk Lewinson. It does not give an in-depth explanation on this graph and i have watched videos on YouTube and it does not explain the comparison of distribution.

I would also like to know if this is positively skewed.

This is the distribution graph. enter image description here

Thank you for your help!

    $\begingroup$ We need a little bit more context on where this graph comes from. On a first point of view it looks just to describe the Distribution of Age, so explaining you have a majority of 30-yo people on your data. There's no real interpretation, it helps you visualising how Age is distributed on your data... $\endgroup$

Please find beautiful, explanation about KDE, In your graph on X Coordinateif the tail is stretching long towards right side then its positively skewed, it means most of your data points were distributed to left side and vise versa for negative skewness.

  • Always we needs to ensure that data points on the graph needs to be equally distributed to form Gaussian Normal Curvefor better outcome.
  • There are various techniques to get rid of skewness , please find top 3 methods to play around with skewed data .

Some prerequisites references for any Distribution Charts
