    How to interpret Jarque Bera results




    Dear all,

    When I test my data for normality of distribution, I obtain the Jarque Bera value of 280 and a p-value of 0. What does this mean?

    Thank you!

    The JB statistic is an indication of your distributions deviation of 0 (skewness and Kurtosis if it was truley a normal distribution). P-valu = 0 indicates that the null hypothesis: "the distrubution is normal" is rejected.

    P
    The earth is round: P<0.05
