We derive some physical properties of ideal assemblies of identical particles obeying generalized exclusion statistics. We discuss fluctuations and in this connection point out a fundamental contrast to conventional quantum statistics. We demonstrate a duality relating the distribution of particles at statistics g to the distribution of holes at statistics 1g. We suggest an application to Mott insulators.
