\$4.7. Properties of the Median

:be 'l'he Meclial has the tbllowing properties :
(i) The sum of the atrsolute values of deviations of the items liom median is minirnum
i.e., Z lX - Med' I < t I X -A I

where A ls any assumed median.

position of tltc items in
(ij) The lVledian is a positional average and therefore, it is influenced by the
the array and not by the size of items.
When
(iii) When the 6istribution is skewed towards the left then Median is greater than the Mean'
is than the Mean. ln symmetrical distribution
the distribution is skewed towards right, then Medizrn less

Median and Mean are equal.

\$4.8. Merits of Median
(i) Iixtreme items. Median is not affected by the magnitude of extreme items'
(ii) Graph. Median can be calculated by graph also'
(iii) Ideal Average. Median satisfies the condition of an idcal average that it should be rigidly deltned
and easilY calculated.
(iy) euantitative measurement. Median can be located when the items in a series are not capable of
quantitativc measurement.
(v) Inspection. Median can be calculated by inspection only'
(ri) Inconrplete datal The mcdian can be located for incomplete data providcd that the nutnber and

gcneral location of all the items are known'

\$7.4. Bimodal Series-Estimation of Mode from Mean and Median

'l'he technique discussed in previous section of finding mode fails in case of Bimodal series ( The series .utU -

which has two equal rnaximum fiequencies is called Bimodal series as shown in diagrarn below) :
For moderately asymmetrical distribution, there usually exists
Y a
relationship among mean, median and mode. The mean, median and
moile will have identical values for symmetrical distribution. But if the o
c,
distribution is skewed (moderately), tlte mean, median ard mode will f
OJ

o
pull apart. If the distribution tails off towards higher values, the mean ILo
and rnedian will be greater than the motle, if it tails towards lower valuss,
the moclc rvill be greater than either of the other two measures, In other
wordsfortrro<Ieratelyasymmetricaldistribrrtionmean,medianandmode Mode Mode x
are related as Marks
Mode = Mean - 3(Mean - Median)
=3Median-2Mean "'(I)
It is known as empirical relationship between mean, median and mode. Wlten series is bimodal, the
value of mode catt be determincd by the empirical relationship.
