Using descriptive stats, the average mass = 0.855 jupiter. The orbital periods range 0.32 to 261 days. The average semi-major axis = 0.103 au, ranging 0.00622 au to 0.91359 au. Most of these are somewhat large exoplanets (the average radii larger than 5 earth radii) and orbit very close to their host stars.
