Measures of Non-Central Tendency. Particularly when dealing with large data sets, quantiles can be used to describe the location of key data points in an ordered array. The more commonly used quantiles are: quartiles, deciles, and percentiles. Visualize a large data set organized as an ordered array (from smallest to largest values). Quartiles would break down the ordered array into four equal quarters, deciles into ten equal parts, and percentiles into a hundred equal parts, identifying a corresponding data point value. For example, the thirteenth percentile would be a value depicting that thirteen percent of the data points in the ordered array would have smaller values.
