1. Syntax

MEDIAN(d0,Alignments...)

2. Input

The Median function requires the following input:

  • d0 - The set of data values for which the Median is calculated.

3. Parameters

The Median function accepts the following parameters:

  • Alignments... (One or More, Optional) – Hierarchy placeholders to be used as the alignment axis. Input values are grouped by the specified hierarchy values, and the median calculated for each group: e.g., MEDIAN($Quantity$, $Country$) calculates the median quantity for each country.

Tip
When using alignment parameters in a formula visualization, you can choose to display these median values grouped by only the alignment hierarchy values, for example to display just the median for each country without the original input values.

4. Output

The Median function generates the following output:

  • Median - A single value representing the median (or for each group when using alignment parameters).
