Snapshot 2019: Distribution Statistics

This information is presented to help readers understand the distribution of values for a particular item. By examining the variance between the high, low, and intermediate values, you may determine whether districts have similar characteristics on some measures, such as pupil/teacher ratios, or very different characteristics on others, such as total number of students.

Charters have been excluded from this analysis because their characteristics differ dramatically from the independent school districts. This causes the charters to appear in disproportionate numbers in the extremes of the distributions, which distorts the high and low values.

Each item is analyzed independently; the district with the highest value for one item is not necessarily the district with the highest value for other items. The terms used are defined as follows:

  • LOWEST (HIGHEST) VALUE For any given item, the lowest (highest) value found among all the districts.

  • XXTH PERCENTILE For any given item, a value at the point in the distribution where XX percent of the school districts are below the value. For example, the 10th percentile means that 10 percent of the school districts have values lower than the value shown.

  • MEDIAN For any given item, the value at the point in the distribution where half of the school districts are below the value, and half are above.
