In sampling from general populations, the skewness and kurtosis statistics are subject to the constraint
$b_2 > 1 + b_1$. A bivariate product-density model for the distribution of $\sqrt b_1$ and b2 is studied, consisting of a Johnson SU approximation to the marginal density of $\sqrt b_1$, and a gamma density for the conditional distribution of b2. Equiprobability contours are given for sampling from normal and nonnormal populations. In the normal case, an eight-parameter model is completely specified.
