Frequently Asked Questions

Which is the best definition of a power law distribution?

Power-law probability distributions In a looser sense, a power-law probability distribution is a distribution whose density function (or mass function in the discrete case) has the form, for large values of

Which is better a lognormal distribution or a power law?

For most data sets, a power law is actually a worse fit than a lognormal distribution, or perhaps equally good, but rarely better. This fact was one of the central empirical results of the paper `Clauset et al. 2007 <http://arxiv.org/abs/0706.1062>`__, which developed the statistical methods that ``powerlaw`` implements.

Are there any empirical distributions that fit the power law?

Few empirical distributions fit a power law for all their values, but rather follow a power law in the tail. Acoustic attenuation follows frequency power-laws within wide frequency bands for many complex media.

How is income distributed according to a power law?

Income is distributed according to a power-law known as the Pareto distribution (for example, the net worth of Americans is distributed according to a power law with an exponent of 2). On the one hand, this makes it incorrect to apply traditional statistics that are based on variance and standard deviation (such as regression analysis).
