# Decile

## Quantile dividing data into 10 equal parts / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In descriptive statistics, a **decile** is any of the nine values that divide the sorted data into ten equal parts, so that each part represents 1/10 of the sample or population.[1] A decile is one possible form of a quantile; others include the quartile and percentile.[2] A decile rank arranges the data in order from lowest to highest and is done on a scale of one to ten where each successive number corresponds to an increase of 10 percentage points.
