Welcome to "The Well-Chosen Average"

What's This?

"The Well-Chosen Average" is a web site which explains the differences between "mean", "median", & "mode". If you have ever been confused by these terms, you're in the right place. Before you leave you will understand their differences, similarities, and how each can be used or abused.

This site was inspired by Darrell Huff's excellent book, How to Lie With Statistics. Everyone should own a copy. Do you have yours?
