    Re: Does normal distribution not apply on website statistics?

    If I understood you correctly, you have run the Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests, and they have confirmed with p-values below 1% that the true distributions are not normal. This is definitive on such a small sample size (in a huge data set even small discrepancies come out as statistically significant, but here statistical significance indicates substantial departure from normality). Why are you still unsure? Did I understand correctly what you had done?
