To what distribution it's similar? Looks like an exponential but it's not.

It's seems to have a property, that if I zoom it (xlim) then each time it has the same shape. [some "fractal kind" property].

It doesn't fit to Exponential Distribution.

It can be observed on the below plots:

    $\begingroup$ Looks like a distribution with positive values only, generally decreasing, and a long tail. You might want to start with Pareto or power law distributions. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It's not likely to be especially close to any simple distribution; however, some may be adequate. Are the data integers? The spikes at round numbers present smoe interesting problems (with rounder numbers seeming to get bigger spikes). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Glen_b, the date is not integers, but peaks about 50 and 100 make sense. $\endgroup$
