Third, as the sample size was not large enough, we just used the lower and upper quartiles but not stratified analysis to evaluate the associations between first-trimester FPG and adverse pregnancy outcomes.
8) when the difference between values of a lower and upper quartile of healthy and broken motors respectively is around 0.02.
Second, the total sample was subdivided into quartiles of MoCA distribution, and differences in allele and genotype frequencies between lower and upper quartiles were estimated in case-control analysis by Fisher's exact test.

Just 27% of children in the upper quartile of needle fear had done so, versus 48% in the least anxious quartile (VAS less than 32).
Moving from right to left in Figure 2, the 1995 and 2015 cumulative distribution curves for the MOR of southern pine begin to diverge starting near the upper quartile. As the slope of the 2015 curve flattens, the distance between the two curves becomes larger.

These actions in turn will help improve their management costs, which are in the upper quartile compared with rated peers.
Staff costs LSH's analysis reveals that current staff costs (based on average local salaries in the upper quartile of earners), together with prevailing occupier costs for a new-build office, amount to an overall annual cost of just over PS50,000 per workstation in Cardiff compared to more than PS80,000 in London's midtown.
