Answer: How do I simply output Deciles in Excel?
Yes, Excel has a function to calculate deciles and percentiles. You can use the PERCENTILE function to find the value at a specific percentile in a dataset.
To find the deciles and percentiles for your dataset, follow these steps:
You can also use the QUARTILE function to find the quartiles of your dataset. The formula is =QUARTILE(A:A,1) for the first quartile, =QUARTILE(A:A,2) for the second quartile (median), and =QUARTILE(A:A,3) for the third quartile.

Assume your range is A1:A1000, to get deciles:
=PERCENTILE(A1:A1000,x/10) Where "x" is the decile number.  Regards, Dave "iceman30" wrote: I am trying to find deciles as well as P20 P30 ... P90 for a large dataset. Doe Excel have a function or an easy way to perform this opperation? Thanks,
