Discrete Probability Distributions

Discrete probability distributions are used when the characteristic being investigated is represented by an integer (count) value. For example the score on a playing dice can only be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.

A discrete distribution could be used to show the probability of getting a particular score on a single throw of the dice. If only one dice was involved the distribution would be uniform; there is an equal chance of any score. If two die were thrown the score could range from 2 to 12, with the highest probability being a score of 7.

Examples of discrete distributions include the Binomial Distribution, the Hypergeometric Distribution and the Poisson Distribution. MiC Quality offers online courses, including two courses in Statistics, the Primer in Statistics and the Advanced Statistics Course. Try out our courses by taking the first module of the Primer in Statistics free of charge. [SIX SIGMA GLOSSARY ALPHABETICAL INDEX] [SIX SIGMA GLOSSARY INDEX OF TOPICS] [Top]
