Central tendency refers to a typical or central value in a data distribution. Its measures include the mean, mode, and median. Mean refers to the average or the most common value within a dataset. It is calculated by obtaining the sum of all numerical data and dividing the sum by the number of values. Mean can be used to analyze public health data because it reflects a typical value in a large set of data. For example, public health data may contain people’s BMI counts. However, it is hard to memorize all the BMI values of the participants. That is why the mean is used to find an average value that serves as a typical value when obtaining people’s BMI counts. Median refers to the value in the middle of a large data set. It gives a more accurate average value, especially when the distribution of the data set is skewed.
