## Hip Scores

These live hips score stats are updated daily. **They are only for dogs xrayed in the last five years.** All the current radiologists on the
panel enter all results into ORCHID.

If a breed is an official ANKC breed then only results for Dogs Australia registered dogs are used for the results. For non-Dogs Australia breeds the results come from non-Dogs Australia registered dogs and these breeds have an asterisk * after the breed name.

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".
