Probability distributions: ems:PointEstimate, ems:UniformDistribution, ems:TriangularDistribution, ems:NormalDistribution, ems:PoissonDistribution, ems:QuantileFunction, ems:CumulativeDistributionFunction


A uniform distribution is a probability distribution in which any value between a given low and high value is equally probable, and any value outside that range has zero probability.

An ems:UniformDistribution resource represents a uniform distribution.


An ems:UniformDistribution resource has the following properties:

Property Range Type Occurrence Edits Description
ems:low datatype xsd:double exactly-one read-write The low value.
ems:high datatype xsd:double exactly-one read-write The high value.


This is the low value of the distribution. The probability is zero below this value and goes positive above this value.


This is the high value of the distribution. The probability is zero above this value and goes positive below this value.


Uniform Distribution 1

The following resource represents a uniform distribution with a low value of 30000 and a high value of 100000:
