#### More About this Sample Median Calculator

The sample median is one commonly used measure of central tendency, that is used to summarize the data into one "average" value, that provides a measure of location of a distribution.

The sample median is typically used as a representative measure of the center of the distribution when the sample mean is deemed to be inappropriate due to the fact that the data is skewed or it has outliers. In that case, the median will give a better representation of the center of the distribution.
