# Overview of the Beta

Distribution

The beta distribution is a family of continuous probability distributions. This is evidenced by the smooth shape of the above graph of a beta distribution’s PDF (Probability Density Function) curve. The beta distribution is defined on the interval [0,1] and is defined by two positive shape parameters α and β. The Excel formulas that calculate the PDF and CDF of the beta distribution have optional inputs that enable the [0, 1] interval to be expanded to an arbitrary width.

The beta distribution is most often used to model events which are constrained to take place between a minimum and maximum time limit. In this case the beta distribution is used to calculate the probability that a project will be completed within a given period of time. For this reason, the beta distribution is often used for modeling project planning and control systems such as PERT (Project Evaluation and Review Technique) and CPM (Critical Path Method).

The beta distribution is used in general to model the variation of a variable across samples, such as the percentage of the day people spend watching television. The beta distribution can be applied to a wide variety of disciplines to model the behavior of a random variable limited to intervals of finite length. Examples include the modeling of the variability of soil properties and the proportions of the minerals in rocks in stratigraphy.

## Graphing the Distribution’s PDF –

Probability Density Function

### Step 1 – Create a Count

The Count becomes the basis for the X and Y values of each data point on the graph. This count will contain 100 points that count from 0 to 100 in increments 1. There are many ways to create a count. This count uses the method ROW() – ROW($B) to increment each cell value in the column by 1.

### Step 2 – Create the X Values

One X value is created for each increment of the Count. The Min and Max Completion Times determine how wide the graph will be and therefore are part of the X value calculation.

### Step 3 – Create the Y Values

One Y value is created for each increment of the Count. The Y value of each data point is its PDF value. The beta distribution’s PDF value requires the X value and its four parameters (α, β, and the Min and Max Completion Times) as follows:

The following Excel-generated graph shows the beta distribution’s PDF (Probability Density Function) for as the X value (the completion time) goes from 0 to 1 with α = 8 and β = 10.

The PDF value of a statistical distribution (the Y value) at a specific X value equals the probability that the value of a random sample will ** be equal to** that X value if the population of data values from which the sample was taken is distributed according the stated distribution. The CDF value of a statistical distribution (the Y value) at a specific X value equals the probability that the value of a random sample will be

**that X value.**

The process of creating an Excel area chart and connecting the user inputs to the chart is shown in detail in the section of this manual that provides instructions on how to create an interactive normal distribution PDF curve with outer tails.

### The Effect of Changing Shape Parameter α

The following Excel-generated graph shows the Beta distribution’s PDF (Probability Density Function) for as the X value (the completion time) goes from 0 to 1 with α = 4 and β = 10.

### The Effect of Changing Shape Parameter β

The following Excel-generated graph shows the Beta distribution’s PDF (Probability Density Function) for as the X value (the completion time) goes from 0 to 1 with α = 8 and β = 2.

### The Effect of Changing Min and Max Completion Times

The following Excel-generated graph shows the Beta distribution’s PDF (Probability Density Function) as the X value (the completion time) goes from 1 to 2 with α = 8 and β = 10. Note the revised values of the X-axis units.

### The Effect of Shifting and Expanding the X-Axis

The following Excel-generated graph shows effect of shifting and expanding the X-axis as the X value (the completion time) goes from 2 to 5 with α = 8 and β = 2. The X-axis was shifted and expanded in order to optimally present the entire PDF curve in a single graph.

## Graphing the Beta Distribution’s

CDF – Cumulative Distribution

Function

The following Excel-generated graph shows the Beta distribution’s CDF (Cumulative Distribution Function) for 10 degrees of freedom as the X value (the completion time) goes from a completion time of 0 to 1.

The CDF value of a statistical distribution (the Y value) at a specific X value equals the probability that the value of a random sample will be ** up to** that X value if the population of data values from which the sample was taken is distributed according the stated distribution. The PDF value of a statistical distribution (the Y value) at a specific X value equals the probability that the value of a random sample will

**that X value.**
