There are over 1.2 million lab tests performed on a daily basis in Canada. That would work out to approximately one test done every day for every person living in the province of Manitoba. Laboratory tests are valuable tools regularly used by physicians to diagnose, monitor and treat patients. Each test provides vital information that guides medical decisions.

Definitions


Average
= The typical number of days 15 people would have waited for a surgery or test.  To calculate the average wait time add up the wait times for all 15 people and divide by the total number of people waiting, in this example 15.  For example the average of these 15 wait times (8, 10, 11, 13, 13, 15, 18, 15, 18, 19, 19, 19, 20, 20, 23) is 241 total days divided by 15 people = 16 days.

Median = The midpoint wait time of a group of people that waited for a surgery or a test.   If you put the wait times of 15 people in order shortest to longest, the wait time of the middle person, in this case the 8th person is the median.  Median of those same 15 wait times (8, 10, 11, 13, 13, 15, 15, 18, 18, 19, 19, 19, 20, 20, 23) is 18 days.  i.e. Half of the people waited less than the median and half waited more than the median.  Note - While the average and the median can be the same, they are often different.

90th Percentile = The number of days in which 9 out of 10 people have had their surgery or test completed.  If you put the wait times of 10 people in order shortest to longest, the wait time of the 9th person is the 90th Percentile.  i.e. 90% of the people waited less than the 90th percentile and 10% waited more than the 90th percentile.  For example the 90th percentile of these 10 wait times (15, 15, 18, 18, 19, 19, 19, 20, 21, 23) is the wait time of the 9th person = 21 days.
