Transform > Random Data > Geometric


Generates random data from a geometric distribution.

The Goemetric distribution is the probability distribution of the number of failures before the first success. It is supported on the set {0, 1, 2, 3,...}



Dialog box items

Target Column:
Enter a storage column for the generated values. Leave blank to have VisualStat automatically name the target column.

Choose from the following options:

oSample Size: Enter the number of rows of random data you want to generate.

oDistribution: Select the distribution for the variable.

oSet Seed with: Lets you start a random number sequence with a seed you specify.

Prob of success: The probability of success. Must be greater than zero and less than or equal to one
