there are numerous numerical approaches to this problem; most are not
that simple. Depends on the data. Here are some references:
Marshall, C. R. 1990. CONFIDENCE-INTERVALS ON STRATIGRAPHIC RANGES.
Marshall, C. R. 1994. Confidence-Intervals On Stratigraphic Ranges -

Horizons. Paleobiology 20(4):459-469.

nonrandom distributions of fossil horizons. Paleobiology 23(2):165-173.

resolution in global correlation. Annual Review of Earth and Planetary

Hope this helps - Roy
