# PERCENTILE.INC

**Applies to:**
Calculated column
Calculated table
Measure
Visual calculation

Returns the k-th percentile of values in a range, where k is in the range 0..1, inclusive.

To return the percentile number of an expression evaluated for each row in a table, use PERCENTILEX.INC.

## Syntax

```
PERCENTILE.INC(<column>, <k>)
```

### Parameters

Term | Definition |
---|---|

column | A column containing the values that define relative standing. |

k | The percentile value in the range 0..1, inclusive. |

## Return value

The k-th percentile of values in a range, where k is in the range 0..1, inclusive.

## Remarks

If column is empty, BLANK() is returned.

If k is zero or blank, percentile rank of 1/(n+1) returns the smallest value. If zero, it is out of range and an error is returned.

If k is nonnumeric or outside the range 0 to 1, an error is returned.

If k is not a multiple of 1/(n + 1), PERCENTILE.INC will interpolate to determine the value at the k-th percentile.

PERCENTILE.INC will interpolate when the value for the specified percentile is between two values in the array. If it cannot interpolate for the k percentile specified, an error is returned.

This function is not supported for use in DirectQuery mode when used in calculated columns or row-level security (RLS) rules.
