Crash Course: Statistics #19 - The Normal Distribution

Today is the day we finally talk about the normal distribution!

The normal distribution is incredibly important in statistics because distributions of means are normally distributed even if populations aren’t. We’ll get into why this is so – due to the Central Limit Theorem – but it’s useful because it allows us to make comparisons between different groups even if we don’t know the underlying distribution of the population being studied.
