The Empirical Rule is also known as the 68-95-99.7 Rule. When 68% of the data values would be located within 1 standard deviation of the mean, 95% of the data values would be located within 2 standard deviations of the mean, and 99.7% of the data values would be located within 3 standard deviations of the mean, statisticians refer to this as the 68-95-99.7 Rule.
