Abstract The frequency distributions of 19 biochemical variables in blood have been studied on 1000 blood donors. The distributions within age/sex groups of calcium, CO2 capacity, chloride, ions difference, inorganic phosphate, potassium, sodium and total protein values did not differ significantly from Gaussian form; those of alkaline phosphatase, cholesterol, creatinine, glucose, glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase, iron, protein-bound iodine, urea and urate could be converted to close agreement with Gaussian distributions by logarithmic transformations, although the glucose distribution remained significantly long-tailed. Albumin and globulin were slightly skew in opposite directions. There was no evidence that distributional shape was affected by age or sex.
