Hello,

What transformations can we apply to data with left or right skewed distributions so that they get converted into approximately normal distributions?

Thanks.

Hi Aditya,

You can try exponential and logarithmic transformation depending on it’s a right skew or left skew. There are also other techniques like square or cube roots transformations.

Please refer to this post which explain how to deal with this stuff -

Hope this helps.
