[issue36018] Add a Normal Distribution class to the statistics module [ In reply to ]
Steven D'Aprano <steve+python@pearwood.info> added the comment:

I have a query about the documentation:

The default *method* is "exclusive" and is used for data sampled
from a population that can have more extreme values than found
in the samples. ...
Setting the *method* to "inclusive" is used for describing
population data or for samples that include the extreme points.

In all my reading about quantile calculation methods, this is the first time I've come across this recommendation. Do you have a source for it or a justification?

Thanks.
