Just a note

This type of plot is known as a quantile scatterplot. As well as providing an easy method to estimate quantiles, it is also an excellent way to display a cumulative frequency distribution.

Any percentile can be easily determined using this method, as can reference intervals. Notice however, that the interpolation is linear, and takes no account of the overall shape of this distribution.
