Given a non-decreasing dataset representing a cumulative frequency distribution, this Demonstration fits a monotonic curve to it (sacrificing either smoothness or exactness of fit where necessary, at the user's choice). This curve can then be used interactively to estimate percentiles for the underlying distribution.
