The median is the middle value of a variable in a distribution of numbers. For example, the median of the sequence 1, 2, 3, 10, 100 is 3. The mean (or average) of these values is 23.2. The median is generally preferred to the mean as a measure of "typical" values since extreme values (very high or very low) will tend to skew the mean.
