Pareto Tails and Lognormal Body of U.S. Cities Size Distribution

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We consider a distribution, which consists of lower tail Pareto, lognormal body, and upper tail Pareto, to estimate the size distribution of all US cities. This distribution fits the data more accurately than a distribution that comprises of only lognormal and the upper tail Pareto.
