Athletes per year at the World senior championships

The median is a statistical measure that represents the middle value in a dataset when the numbers are arranged in order. To find the median, you list all numbers in ascending order. If there is an odd number of observations, the median is the middle number. If there is an even number of observations, the median is the average of the two middle numbers. This measure is useful for understanding the central tendency of a dataset, especially when the data contains outliers that could skew the mean (average)
