Abstract:

Base bioenvironmental engineering BEE shops perform statistical analysis on industrial hygiene and environmental sample results by calculating the mean, standard deviation and 95 confidence intervals. However, these calculations assume the sample data follows a normal Gaussian distribution. Data should be analyzed for the distribution to be sure the proper statistics are being used. This technical report describes the microcomputer program STATPLOT written in BASIC, which plots sample results on linear vs. probability axes and on logarithmic vs. probability axes. Sample results which follow a normal Gaussian distribution will appear as a straight line on the linear vs. probability plot. Sample results which are log normal will appear as a straight line on the logarithmic vs. probability plot. STATPLOT is provided for use by all BEE shops in reviewing the statistical distribution of sample data univariate analysis.
