The median is a measure of central tendency that is calculated by finding the middle score when the data set is placed in numerical order. If there is an even number of data, then the median is the sum of the two middle numbers, divided by two. The median is not affected by extreme scores but is less sensitive than the mean, as not all scores are included in the calculation.
