Abstract

Percentile rankings are frequently used to help characterize what is usual in a defined population and can be used to establish a baseline score for a group of measurements in a specific population To improve the accuracy and value of this information it is important that the individuals being compared are representative of the population in which specific percentile rankings were derived. Currently, there is little information regarding percentile rankings specific to individuals within the law enforcement community. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to establish normative data specific to highway patrol officers on selected measures of physical fitness.
