In a previous post, we looked at the differences in speed across the American Kennel Club jump heights. In this post, we look at differences in qualifying rate between heights”. The table and charts below are based on all Regular Masters runs from 1/1/2014 to 1/1/2015. The histogram charts below show the distribution of qualifying rate for each height. (Note: the charts may take a few moments to load)
Average Qualifying Rate at Each Height
Entered Per Class
It is interesting to note that the qualifying rate is universally lower in Standard than it is in Jumpers. Also note that qualifying rate and speed have an inverse relationship; as a group of dogs gets faster, their qualifying rate gets lower (as seen in the following two graphs).
Distribution of Qualifying Rate Across Each Height – Jumpers With Weaves
All 6 Jumpers With Weaves distribution charts use the same horizontal axis range. This allows you to visually compare the qualifying rate distribution between heights.
Distribution of Qualifying Rate Across Each Height – Standard
All 6 Standard distribution charts use the same horizontal axis range. This allows you to visually compare the qualifying rate distribution between heights.
