The "mean" is the "average" you're used to, where you add up all the numbers and then divide by the number of numbers. The "median" is the "middle" value in the list of numbers. To find the median, your...

Descriptive Statistic Paper

distribution. The central tendency of a distribution is an estimate of the "center" of a distribution of values. There are three major types of estimates of central tendency: Mean, Median, and Mode. The mean or average is the most common used method of describing central tendency and can be used for all data. The Median is the score found at the exact middle of the set of values. The mode is the most frequently occurring value in the set of scores (Lind, Marchal, Wathem, 2005). Understanding how...
