Subject Keywords: birth weight

This program estimates the parameters of birth weight for your frequency distribution. There are two components of any birth weight distribution, with a total of three parameters. The main (predominant) distribution is Gaussian, and is defined by a mean and a standard deviation. The second (residual) distribution is a more irregular portion lying outside the lower tail of the predominant distribution.

The residual distribution is summarized here as a percent of the whole population. This program also provides estimates of the exact frequency distributions for each component of your birth weight distribution. For a fuller discussion of these parameters and their biological interpretation, see the Frequency Distribution of birth weight.
