Hey I ran a poisson dist. on my data and found this comparison with results from poisson and the observed proportions:

The first values are the observed proportions, which sum up to 1

The second values are the poisson generated values.

- 0.301886792
- 0.320754717
- 0.169811321
- 0.122641509
- 0.066037736
- 0.018867925

SUM: - 1

- 0.249875508
- 0.320754717
- 0.240279452
- 0.111072577
- 0.038508653
- 0.010680702

SUM: - 0.996942361

Now I really want to know if this disparity in my results is okay because I was trying to test if poisson distribution is right for my data. please advise me if the observed data and the poisson data disparity is within reason.

Thanks,

Zenithwolf.
