Median versus Mean

Median versus Mean

Median and mean are both valuable statistics to gather, but there are some important differences between them that can make one vastly different than the other. When there are a few numbers that are much larger or smaller than the rest of the data, the mean can sometimes become biased towards those different numbers. Median, on the other hand, will not be biased by these outliers. Looking at both can give you a more complete picture of what is really going on.
