Proposed "Official" Color Proportions

14 April 2010, I (KohanX) took the current drop statistics from above and created a set of drop rates from "nice" numbers (multiples of 2.5%), resulting in the following:

GreenYellowOrangePurpleBlueBrownRedSilverBlackWhite
Observed 14.7% 16.2% 12.6% 12.6% 8.9% 11.3% 9.1% 9.4% 2.8% 2.5%
Proposed 15% 15% 12.5% 12.5% 10% 10% 10% 10% 2.5% 2.5%

A chi-square test using this data of 1689 observances shows that, if this proposed set of color proportions is correct, then the data that has been accumulated so far has a 38.6% chance of occurring.

All things considered, I think that a roughly-40% level of confidence is pretty good. If anyone thinks that a different proposed set is more likely, but he or she does not know how to conduct a chi-square test, I will be happy to do so for him or her if I am e-mailed at hotmail.com@idrox0 (in reverse, of course). I am happy to have put my Statistics course to good use :).

Pre-Nightfall

This table tracks the drops rate of Dye before Nightfall, and the introduction of white and brown dyes into the game.
