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 highest-ranked Permits that account for approximately a fourth of the Fishery total Gross Earnings aggregated to the nearest Permit. The second highest Quartile includes the next-ranked 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

The average earnings column contains two numbers 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.
