Beta Distribution

Definition

Health Economics

  • A frequency distribution having two parameter s, usually labelled a and b, mean = a/(a + b), variance = ab/[(a + b)2(a + b + 1)] and that is bounded on the interval 0-1. It is flexible, and can be symmetrical about the mean or positively or negatively skewed.
