I have a question regarding a data set. I have observations about the number of files generated by a user over two months.
My data set is
-- a total of 43 days with observations (two months = 60 days, but the user didn't create any file during 17 of these days). Do I need to include the days with 0 files created in the data set and set their value to zero?.
Summary statistics show that
min: 1 max: 18 median: 4 mean: 5.883721 estimated sd: 5.310409 estimated skewness: 1.031521 estimated kurtosis: 2.81521 Min. 1st Qu. Median Mean 3rd Qu. Max. 1.000 1.500 4.000 5.884 9.000 18.000
Now I am trying to find a possible distribution.
I want to make some prediction of how the user will continue to generate files (network simulation).
When I do a Cullen and Frey graph, my observation is placed in the gray area (denoting a Beta distribution). That confuses me since I read that this is typically for values between 0 and 1.
Any suggestions and guidelines are welcome since I am quite stuck
