Abstract

It is the purpose of this study to discuss completely the median of a frequency distribution: first, by showing clearly what a median is; second, by showing the present and possible future applications for the median in the field of mathematical statistics; third, by taking all methods for interpolating for the median which have been advocated in the literature, or which may not have been advocated to date but appear plausible, and discuss these methods as to the way they are used, the plausibility of their use, and the accuracy obtained by their use.
