These are what I've found, so feel free to add to it. First sentence:

It was the smallest/lowest/least significant/ value among all three categories in 1990.

The second sentence:

It reached the smallest/minimum value of X over the period.

or:

It reached as low as X over the period.

or:

It minimized at X over the period.

  • None of them are strictly wrong or right. They call can be wrong or right based on what exactly you're saying is happening and what X is. What is X?

  • "It reached a minimum value of X during the period" or possibly "During the period it reached / registered a minimum value of X" Commented Sep 24, 2023 at 1:18

  • @AES Just a suggestion , an alternative word. I was thinking in terms of a graph of the data - the smallest value would be called the minimum. The daily noon temperature for the month of March for example. During March the daily noon temperature registered a minimum of 4 degrees on the 14th. There are better ways of saying this.
