Weibull Plotting Position

The Weibull Plotting Position is defined as

$$P(x>X)= \frac{m}{N+1}$$


$m$ : rank of the statistical variate

$N$ : total number of observations

$P$ : probability that the variate x exceeds the value X or $P(x>X)$

Background and theory are discussed in depth by Makkonen (2005).
