more coming... :-)

I have found that when working with the highly diverse range of kwh use within each member class that a quartile breakdown (4 groups) is a more meaningful method of conveying summary information. It is very easy for "averages" to skew the understanding of our underlying data.

Wiki definition

The quartiles worked out fairly well for the model programming and complexity as opposed to using a greater level of breakdown (groups) using more various percentiles. Some of us remember quartiles from our old school days and national/state testing programs... lol...
