Definitions of statistical terms
Average (arithmetic mean) - the sum of a list of numbers divided by the number of numbers in the list.
Median - the number separating the higher half of a data set from the lower half. The median of a list of numbers can be found by arranging all the data from the lowest value to the highest value and picking the middle one. If there is an even number of samples, then the median is defined to be the mean of the two middle values.
Standard deviation - is used to quantify the amount of variation or dispersion of a set of data values. A low standard deviation indicates that the data points tend to be very close to the mean of the set, while a high standard deviation indicates that the data points are spread out over a wider range of values.
