Quartile Tables
TABLE DESCRIPTION
Quartile Tables show the distribution of estimated Gross Earnings among
Permit Holders for each Permit Fishery and Year. Quartiles are established by
ranking Permits (excluding Educational, Hatchery, Test, and Reservation),
highest to lowest, by Permit Holders estimated Gross Earnings in the Fishery.
The highest Quartile contains the highestranked Permits that account for
approximately a fourth of the Fishery total Gross Earnings aggregated to the
nearest Permit. The second highest Quartile includes the nextranked Permit
holders that account for approximately a fourth of the Fishery total Gross
earnings aggregated to the nearest Permit. The remaining Quartiles are
defined in a similar way.
The report contains the following information:
NUMBER OF PERMITS
The number of permits column
contains two numbers for each Quartile. The top number is
the actual number of Permits (Permits actually fished) in the
Quartile. The bottom number is the cumulative number: the
number of Permits in that Quartile, plus the number of Permits
in each higher Quartile. The cumulative number for the lowest
Quartile shows the total number of Permits with Fishery
revenues.
PERCENTAGE OF
PERMITS
The Percentage of Permits column contains two
numbers for each Quartile. The top number is the actual
Percentage of all Permits falling into that Quartile. The
bottom number is the Cumulative Percentage of Permits
in that Quartile: the Percentage of Permits in that Quartile
plus the Percentage of Permits in each higher Quartile. The
cumulative number for the lowest Quartile is 100%.
TOTAL EARNINGS
The Total Earnings column contains
two numbers for each Quartile. The top number is the actual
total estimated Gross Earnings for that Quartile. The bottom
number is the Cumulative Estimated Gross Earnings for the Permits
in that, and the higher, Quartiles. The Cumulative Earnings
for the lowest Quartile is the Total Gross Earnings in the
Fishery.
PERCENTAGE OF EARNINGS
The Percentage of Earnings
column contains two numbers for each Quartile. The top number
is the Actual Percentage of Total Earnings for that Quartile.
The bottom number is the Cumulative Percentage of Gross
Earnings for that, and the higher, Quartiles. The Cumulative
Percentage for the lowest Quartile is 100%.
AVERAGE EARNINGS

for each Quartile. The top number is the Actual Average or
Mean Gross Earnings for the Permit Holders in that Quartile.
The bottom number is the Cumulative Average Gross Earnings for
the Permits in that Quartile and the higher Quartiles. The
Cumulative Average Gross Earnings for the lowest Quartile is
the Average Gross Earnings for the Fishery.
