**  The salary distribution for a given job/location is described with percentiles, which are the salary levels below which a certain percentage of the workforce is paid. So for example, the 25th percentile salary is the salary below which 25% of people in the job/location are paid. The 50th percentile is the salary level for which 50% of workers are paid less, and 50% are paid more – and is also therefore the median salary.
