st: Finding missing distribution tail and description of the histogram fitted normal curve
Dear All, Can anyone help with that?
I have a series of observations that produce a positively skewed
distribution. There is reason to believe that the distribution is
normal but the points describing the left tail are missing. Using a
histogram and a normal curve on that seems to be able to give an
approximate solution but I can't find a way to obtain the mean and
standard deviation of this fitted distribution. Does anyone know how
to obtain those through Stata? A further complication is that the
observations are frequency weighed and they are very few, below 10
observations in total. Any other ideas of how I can find what the
expected points in the left tail will be?
