- Uniform distribution can refer to:
- They share the property that they have a bounded range, and are weakly unimodal where any members of their support can be taken to be the mode.
In Bayesian statistics, some users assume unbounded uniform prior distributions (as a translation invariant Jeffreys prior), which are improper priors. For instance, maximum likelihood estimation can be interpreted as maximum a posteriori estimation with a uniform prior, even if the resulting distribution is improper.
