The percentile is a statistical measure of position that divides the distribution of data and orders it from highest to lowest in one hundred equal parts.

The percentile is used to measure the proportion of the data series that is below its value. For example, a data point at the 25th percentile would mean that there are 25 lower data points and 75 higher data points.
