Probability & Statistics with Quantities

In everyday language, you use quantities with probability and statistics concepts surprisingly often, e.g. height distribution, cost distribution, temperature distribution, or for that matter mean weight or median voltage. It is typically because you deal with a whole collection of values perhaps from many measurements or simply many things.  The Wolfram Language provides extensive support for both probability and statistics, as well as quantities and their integrated use. Data and distributions can have units, and all their subsequent manipulation will automatically support the automatic propagation and conversion as needed.
