Description

• 

Important: The stats package has been deprecated. Use the superseding package Statistics instead.

• 

The function decile of the subpackage stats[describe, ...] finds the item in data that correspond to the decile specified by which. If the requested decile falls between entries, it is interpolated.

• 

The deciles are values that divide a data set, once sorted, into 10 equal parts.

• 

Missing data are ignored.

• 

For information about the parameter gap, see describe[gaps].

• 

The data must be numeric.

• 

The command with(stats[describe],decile) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
