A standard deviation
below average (so
below 480), if the
numbers be true, is
dismal. Being in the
second group (480 to
499) is nothing to be
happy about either.
One of the few nice
things about averages
is that, when the dice
roll fairly, there's a
reasonable
expectation that there
will be 10 counties
with averages one
standard deviation or
better above the
mean, so higher than
544.
