Average Prices in the report reflect the median (or “middle”) price paid across all commercial payments in the CO APCD. For example, if payments to one facility were $10, $20, $30, $40, and $50, the median would be $30, or the middle price. The “Price Range” reflects the typical range of payments after removing extremely high and low payments on both ends, using a 25th and 75th percentile calculation.
