*median is the exact middle of a range of numbers. In simplistic terms, if you got 25 people to write down their salary, 12 would have a salary higher than the median, 12 would have on lower and one person would have the median salary. This is a more accurate figure than average salary, where one or two people who earned very large (or very small) salaries could skew the results.
