Hi everyone:

I'm having some trouble interpreting the output of Skewness/Kurtosis
test, can you tell me if the variables that I tested, rsize and
avg_cpi,  are normally distributed?

Thank you!

                                                         ------- joint ------
    Variable |    Obs   Pr(Skewness)   Pr(Kurtosis)  adj chi2(2)    Prob>chi2
-------------+---------------------------------------------------------------
       rsize |    438      0.0000         0.0000            .         0.0000

. sktest avg_cpi
