PERCENTILE function

Returns the value at a given percentile of a dataset.

Sample Usage

PERCENTILE(A2:A100,A2)

PERCENTILE(A2:A100,0.67)

Syntax

PERCENTILE(data, percentile)

  • data - The array or range containing the dataset to consider.

  • percentile - The percentile whose value within data will be calculated and returned.

Notes

  • The value returned by PERCENTILE is not necessarily a member of data as this function interpolates between values to calculate the alpha percentile.

  • The 50th percentile, that is setting percentile to 0.5 is equivalent to using MEDIAN with the same dataset.
