We identify a role for smooth curve provision in the finite population context. The performance of kernel density estimates in this scenario is explored, and they are tailored to the finite population situation especially by developing a method of data-based selection of the smoothing parameter appropriate to this problem. Simulated examples are given, including some from the particular context of permutation distributions which first motivated this investigation.
