44 APPENDIX D--Compendium of Comparative Minimum Standards The following tables identify the types of standards commonly included in airport Minimum Standards for the customary commercial aeronautical activities identified in this digest, and information concerning each stan- dard. Specifically, the tables include the following data for each standard: Frequency--The number of airport Minimum Standards from among the subject documents that include the particular standard. Mean--The arithmetic average for each standard. Low--The lowest value for each standard. High--The highest value for each standard. The tables are organized in rank order according to the frequency with which the particular commercial aero- nautical activity occurs at the 99 respondent airports, as detailed in Section V.57 It is important to note that this frequency is different from the frequency with which particular commercial aeronautical activities are ad- dressed within the subject documents. 57 Aircraft refurbishment is not included in the Compendium because none of the subject documents addressed this com- mercial aeronautical activity.
