German term or phrase: Unterschreitungsanteil
In meinem Text geht es unter anderem um Quantile. Der gesuchte Begriff mit einer ganz guten Erklärung findet sich zum Beispiel in Wikipedia (Eintrag Quantil) in folgendem Absatz:

Als Quantil der Ordnung p wird in der Statistik ein Merkmalswert bezeichnet, unterhalb dessen ein vorgegebener Anteil p aller Fälle der Verteilung liegt. Jeder Wert unterhalt von Qp unterschreitet diesen vorgegebenen Anteil. Deshalb wird p auch als Unterschreitungsanteil bezeichnet. Dabei ist p eine reelle Zahl zwischen 0 und 1.

Es gibt zwar auch einen englischen Eintrag zum Thema Quantile, aber der ist leider vollkommen anders aufgebaut. Jede Hilfe ist sehr willkommen. Vielen Dank im Voraus

Explanation:
Apparently not very common, but where this term is used, it fits the definition. Sometimes the variable p is used, sometimes q.

neutral  Vito Smolej: "Sometimes the variable p is used, sometimes q." - thats unnecessarily sloppy: q is quantile (value), and p is the probability. They should be kept separate - but combined, like q(p)
