Describe what percentiles are
Data can be broken down into specific percentiles. These percentiles can help identify outliers and show better use of the data. For example a Fire Department uses 90th percentile to represent their data. This 90th percentile shows that 90 percent of the data fell below a certain time standard. Pediatricians may use percentiles to describe how a patient's growth fits in with overall data.
