The Normal Distribution Table can also tell you for a given probability what the z-score would be. If the probabilities were divided into infinitely small units and the absolute value of the z-score at each probability was taken, what would the average absolute value of the z-scores be? I have data that I want to use the Normal Distribution Table for. Ignoring the fact that my data may or may not be symmetrically distributed, my data has a smaller standard deviation than normally distributed data. I'll give an example of what I want to do. Let's say I have symmetrical data where 80 percent of the data is within 1 standard deviation of the mean and 98 percent of the data is within 1 standard deviation of the mean. Is there a good transformation I can do with my data to change the standard deviations to make it normally distributed? Edit: I generated 100 random probabilities from 0 to 1. I'm going to look up the z-score for each probability and use that to estimate the average absolute value of the z-scores for the Normal Distribution Table.
