The median is a measure of central tendency. It represents the value where 50% of the observations have a lower value and 50% have a higher value. Simply put, when you sort your data by size, the median is the value in the middle.

For an odd number of values, the median is a value of the value in the middle, for an even number of values, the median is the average of the two middle values. Of course, you can also use the Mean Calculator.
