Skewness problem

  • To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net
  • Subject: [mg62944] Skewness problem

Skewness[ {0, 7, 7, 6, 6, 6, 5, 5, 4, 1}] results in -1.04137.

Reversing the data to {1,4,5...} I expected a different skewness,
because the "tails" are reversed.
But again I get -1.04137.
Is there an error in reasoning?
