MEDIAN Definition & Legal Meaning

Definition & Citations:

An arranged value set finds this specific type of value or quantity at the ascending or descending order’s halfway point. When an odd number of values exists in the set , the exact middle is the median value. With a set containing an even group of values, averaging the two numbers closest to the middle computes the median. Also refer to mode.
