Re: distribution clause db22012-10-23T15:46:22Z in response to bella1You probably want to use the distribution statistics when the distribution of index key values is not uniform. For example, if you have a column with persons' birth dates, the distribution of the dates will be more or less uniform. However, if the column stores the dates when people take their vacations, you will have higher frequency of values during the summer months and around major holidays.
