AB - Problem statement: We considered two types of sequences of ordered statistical discrete data i1, i2…in, 1≤i1≤ i2≤… in≤n and ij = 1,2,…,n, j = 1,2,…,n. The first type is the order statistics of a sample of size n taken from the uniform discrete distribution on the set S = {1,2,…,n}, n ∈ N+. The other type is the increasing ordered word of length n taken from the set S = {1,2,…,n}, n ∈ N+. We studied a common property of both types of samples namely the number of elements ij = j, ij = 1,2,…,n, j = 1,2,…,n. i.e., we find the number of integers in each sequence i1, i2…in satisfying the condition C: ij = j, for both types. We obtain the probability distribution functions as well as the asymptotic distributions of the random variables representing the number of integers satisfying condition C. Approach: We employed combinatorial tools to obtain the number of samples having j elements satisfying condition C in both types, j = 1,2,…,n. Results: For large n ∈ N+, we found that the expected value of the number of samples of the second type, satisfying condition C, is much larger than that of the first type. Conclusion: The result can be used to distinguish between these two data.
