    Random sampling and proportional distribution for age range data: why do results vary?

    Hi everyone I am looking at age-at-death determination of archaeological populations. Due to the nature of the data, these estimations usually span several years, but not all of them have the same degree of precision. For example Individual 1: 5-7 years old Individual 2: 6-10 years old...

    How does one calculate distributions from inprecise time span data of differing levels of precision?

    Thank you very much for the clarifications! I will try it out and let you know if it leads somewhere :)

    How does one calculate distributions from inprecise time span data of differing levels of precision?

    Thanks for the responses. I am not quite sure I understand you correctly. Both your ideas assume that the probability of death occuring is not equal for each time in the range, right? It probably isn't, however, we have no way of knowing at which point death is more or less likely (due to the...

    How does one calculate distributions from inprecise time span data of differing levels of precision?

    Hi everybody I am new to the forum and apologize in advance if I have missed a similar thread when searching the forum. I have a very specific data set, for which I am trying to find a way to calculate a distribution. It consists of age-at-death estimations of archaeological skeletal remains...
