The normal distribution is applicable to many (not all) measured numeric variables, e.g., weight. It is common in nature, manufacturing, etc. for complex processes with many underlying factors. Normal distributions are bell shaped and characterized by center (mean) and spread (variance and standard deviation).

The standard normal is a very special case where the mean is 0 and standard deviation 1, and is useful to determine probabilities for all normal distributions. The empirical rule summarizes how observations occur in terms of standard deviations. Data more than 2 standard deviations from the mean are called outliers and may reflect data entry error or unusual conditions, which can be informative.
