    Truncated and Non-truncated distribution

    I am pretty clear about the truncated distribution as the omission of the unimportant variate values from the given probability distribution.However I want to know more about the differences between the truncated and non-truncated distribution.I googled it but to my despair got nothing about non-truncated distribution.

    Simply I don't know much about non-truncated distribution and I couldnot find much about it on the net.

    The non-truncated distribution is just the distribution.

    What did you start with, observed/empirical distribution, normal Poisson, ...?

    You are not telling us much about your real problem.

    I calculated the mean and variance of the binomial and poisson distribution truncated at X=0.I was asked by my professor to write the differences between truncated and non -truncated distribution,however I don't know about the later part.

    He is asking for the mean and variance of the corresponding binomial and Poisson distribution (that is with the same parameters but without the truncation - look them up on Wikipedia).
