the mean is affected by outliers
there are no limits to outliers there are no limits to outliers
The mean is better than the median when there are outliers.
Outliers pull the mean in the direction of the outlier.
They are observations with a low likelihood of occurrence. They may be called outliers but there is no agreed definition for outliers.
Mean- If there are no outliers. A really low number or really high number will mess up the mean. Median- If there are outliers. The outliers will not mess up the median. Mode- If the most of one number is centrally located in the data. :)
When the distribution has outliers. They will skew the mean but will not affect the median.
