Quartiles:

Most favorable situation

(Lightest color on maps)
Average
2 or 3
Least favorable situation
4
(Darkest color on maps)

Calculation of quartiles require several steps to create the final results.

First, the county values are sorted from most favorable to least favorable.

Second, a rank is assigned based on the value for each county in relation to the preceding county. If a county has the same value as the preceding county, then the same rank is assigned.

Third, the ranking is divided into 4 groups. The number of counties in each group depends on how many counties had the same rank.
