## Hip Scores

These live hips score stats are updated daily. They are for dogs xrayed in the last five years only. All the current radiologists on the panel enter all results into ORCHID. Please note the system only went into production on 12th Sep 2016 so we don't have a full record of all results in the last five years.

The count is the sample count, i.e. the number of results for dogs of that breed. It includes both public and private results. The average and median numbers have been rounded to two decimal places. The average (also called the mean) is defined as "the sum of the values divided by the number of values". The median is defined as "the value separating the higher half from the lower half of a data sample (a population or a probability distribution). For a data set, it may be thought of as the 'middle' value. For example, in the data set {1, 3, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9}, the median is 6, the fourth largest, and also the fourth smallest, number in the sample."
