6
© 2005 Robert Coe, University of Durham 6 Averages: measures of ‘central tendency’ Mean: (X 1 + X 2 + … + X n ) / n For ‘well behaved’ data (symmetric, Normal, interval property), the mean is most efficient estimator (most accurate for given sample size) Fits well in statistical calculations Median: arrange in order, median is middle value Not dependent on interval property More robust to outliers Less ‘efficient’ than the mean

7
