# GCSE Statistics CW - skewness watch

1. My Pearson's measure of skew is 0.85 - is that significantly large? It seems so because my other data set is 0.06 but I'm not sure.

Hi there
I've moved your thread to the Maths forum where hopefully you'll get more answers In future, it's best to select the subject from the list here and create a thread in there instead If you want to see where threads belong, check out this thread

I've never heard of a Pearson's measure of skew, but 0.85 certainly seems to be a lot bigger of a skew than 0.06...assuming the result should be between 1 and -1 then yes it would be a significant skew, otherwise I'm not sure
