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 \dfrac{(n+1)}{2}.
  • If n is an even number, the median is the mean of the values at positions \dfrac{n}{2} and (\dfrac{n}{2})+1.
