Secondly, we examined four distributions by which we can simulate and test our hypotheses of variance, namely, standard normal distribution, half normal distribution, a positive skew normal distribution, and a negative skew normal distribution.
The value of this number obeys the normal distribution where the mean is [mu] and the deviation is a in [a, b].
Graph of the normal distribution is in the form of a completely symmetrical bell-shaped curve which was shown with the mean statistical parameters and variance and which indicates the amount of data distribution and thus the extent of normal distribution curve.

METHODS: We have presented the likelihood function for a bivariate normal distribution taking into account values < LOD as well as missing data assumed missing at random, and we use the estimated distributional parameters to impute values < LOD and to generate multiple plausible data sets for analysis by standard statistical methods.
