Remarks

Recall that the percentile is the value such that at least interest-percent of the data set items are less than or equal to this value, or equivalently if at least (100-interest) percent of the items are greater than or equal to this value.

Remarks:

  1. The 50-th percentile is the measure of centrality of a data set known as the median. The median can also be evaluated using FinancialMedian.
  2. The 25-th, 50-th, 75-th percentiles are often referred to as the 1-st, 2-nd (median) and 3-rd quartile respectively. The term quartile refers to the fact that these three values will roughly divide the data set considered into four equal parts.
