Statistics

Mean
The arithmetic average, calculated by summing all responses and dividing by the number of responses. In these results, the mean and median are calculated weighted by the number of positions, and include answers of 0. The mean is sometimes strongly influenced by extreme values in the distribution.

Median
The median is calculated by rank ordering all responses and then selecting (or interpolating) the value below which 50% of all responses lie. It is often thought of as the “typical” value of a variable and is not influenced by extreme values in the distribution. Also known as the 50th percentile.

# of Establishments
The number of responding establishments meeting the selection criteria and reporting the position.

# of Positions
The total number employed full-time in the position across all reporting establishments as of January 1, 2017 (excludes part-time employees and contractors).
