Probability allows us to infer from a sample to a population. In fact, inference is a tool of probability theory. This paper looks briefly at the Binomial, Poisson, and Normal distributions. These are probability distributions, which are used extensively in inference. An understanding of these distributions will assist the chiropractor and osteopath to critically appraise the literature.
