A new distribution, the Weighted GMD (WGMD) is obtained from the Generalised Multiplicity Distribution (GMD), describing charged-particle multiplicity distributions as the hadronisation products of quark and gluon branching with fluctuations in the initial gluon numbers produced from the collision. The WGMD is shown to describe charged-particle multiplicity distributions in pp collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), and the average initial gluon number is obtained for Poisson distributed gluon multiplicities.
