About Kurtosis


Kurtosis is an analysis export variable available in exported integration analyses.

It reports the kurtosis of the sample values in the domain which was analyzed (dB re 1m-1).

Kurtosis represents a measure of the combined weight of the tails relative to the rest of a distribution. As the tails of a distribution become heavier, the kurtosis will increase. As the tails become lighter, the kurtosis value will decrease.

This variable is exported only if it is selected on the Export page of the EV File Properties dialog box.
