Median (P50) is shown if no percentile is selected.


For a statistical material, the percentiles are the 99 variable values (P1-P99) that divide the material into 100 equal parts. For example, P10 (the tenth percentile) is the variable value where 10 percent of the observations are less than P10. P50 is the median.
The numbers in this table do not represent respons time. They are the result of a calculation of distance and drivetime by road done on the basis of data in the Norwegian road databank (NVDB). In NVDB, network segments that are serviced by ferries have been given an effective speed limit of 12.3 km/h. The distance and drive time by road is calculated from fire stations to residential addresses. Depotes are not included in the analysis.
