I have data set that track daily activity of user. User repeat action one or more times during a day. This actions are independent and I want to determine if there is relation between times of events.

day one First event: 08.14
Second event: 09:00
Third event: 11.45
Fourth event: 12:00

day two First event: 08.05
Second event: 09:50
Third event: 11.05

and so on... as you can see number of actions during a day is determine by distribution that is known. Since I know distribution how I can model this times of events.

  • $\begingroup$ So you want to check whether a user repeats these actions at roughly the same time of the day using data from many days? What is this known distribution that you speak of? $\endgroup$ – user2974951 Jan 11 at 9:02

  • $\begingroup$ Can you post two images of your data, 1) a histogram of all the event times for all the days combined, and 2) a frequency plot of daily events, that is group all the days into one and in each day count the number of events and draw a histogram / barplot. $\endgroup$ – user2974951 Jan 11 at 13:12
  • $\begingroup$ @user2974951 I hope that this is what you were asking, this are data for all days. First chart show that there are 72 days with just one action that day.Second chart I choose bin width arround 5 minutes. $\endgroup$ – explorer Jan 11 at 13:41
