# How do I find the median?

To find the median, first order your data. Then calculate the middle position based on *n*, the number of values in your data set.

- If
*n*is an odd number, the median lies at the position (*n*+ 1) / 2. - If
*n*is an even number, the median is the mean of the values at positions*n*/ 2 and (*n*/ 2) + 1.
