Skew Function
Math Statistics Class

Public Function Skew( _
    ParamArray vValues() As Variant _
    ) As Variant

Returns the skewness of a distribution, as defined in Numerical Recipes in C, Second Edition.
The skewness characterizes the degree of asymmetry of a distribution around its mean.

    Skew(12, 34, 56) = 0
    Skew(12, 34, 78) = 0.207826562129516
    Skew(SampleData) = 0.358004472742792

    StatVarType Property
vValues: The values that are to be processed. Can be numbers, one-dimensional numeric arrays, one-dimensional Variant arrays, one-dimensional Variant arrays with embedded arrays, or any combination of these. The current setting of the StatVarType Property determines which numeric data types are recognized by this function.
Return value: Function returns the skewness of the numeric values. Function returns Null if there are fewer than two numeric values.
