## Contents

The result format median, part of the Extension "Semantic Result Formats" extension, can be used to display the median of all numerical values in the result.

Together with other result formats, SMW is able to provide the five-number summary [1] (five most important sample percentiles):

 Min minimum value (smallest observation) Lower Quartile first quartile (Q1 = 25th percentile) Median middle value (Q2 = 50th percentile) Upper Quartile third quartile (Q3 = 75th percentile) Max maximum value (largest observation)

## Parameters

This result format does not provide format specific parameters.

## Example

Syntax
```{{#ask:
[[Category:City]]
|?Population
|format=median
}}
```
