My dog was missing for 4 hours today. I had an appointment so couldn't continue to look for him. But when I got back there he was. Big Smile!

Reminding a friend of mine that she is never a bother. Told her to message me anytime. I love that little chickadee.

8, 5 and 2.... my three grandsons. Tall like their dad, but magpies like their mom (my daughter) each one in the 110-140 percentile for height.
They love to do science experiments with their Mimi. Smile

Ummm, percentiles go from 1 to 100. Consider

The percentile is based on average or standard height of children their ages. So they are so far past the standard height range. This is how they state it in a docs office.

Doc is fulla poo. How do you even interpret that? 95th percentile for height means that 95% of kids are shorter. 110% for height means that ... 110% of kids are shorter? Hobo Jassus!

That would place them in the top percentile in their age group, 100.

No, the average is around 97% which means some kids will be higher and others lower. It's a bell curve.

Weird isn't it?

So yes, some kids can be over 100 percent and still a very few others will be in negative numbers. I was thrilled when my older son was finally on the chart.

My friend who has a son the same age (her husband was like Lurch), was always around the 130 percent range when he was little. He's very tall today well over 6'5" which blows the bell curve.

I don't know what measure that is, but it is not percentile.

The shape of the distribution is immaterial. Percentile rankings are purely based on what percentage of the measured population is below you. It cannot be below 0 or above 100.
