[Q] Error bar of median
Posted:
May 24, 2006 11:18 AM


Hi,
I have several nonnormal distributions so I have to use median, instead of mean, to represent these distributions.
Since I should use median, it is not clear how I can specify the error of median values. (If I were using a mean, I could use a standard error of the mean to represent the error of the mean)
Can any one tell me how to deal with this problem?
Thanks in advance.
