• Last Updated : 05 Jun, 2020

`median()` function in R Language is used to calculate the median of the elements of the numeric vector passed as argument.

Syntax: median(x, na.rm)

Parameters:
x: Numeric Vector
na.rm: Boolean value to ignore NA

Example 1:

 `# R program to calculate median of a vector ` ` `  `# Creating vector ` `x1 <``-` `c(``2``, ``3``, ``5``, ``7``, ``4``, ``8``, ``6``) ` `x2 <``-` `c(``-``3``, ``-``5``, ``6``, ``2``, ``-``4``) ` ` `  `# Calling median() function ` `median(x1) ` `median(x2) `

Output:

``` 5
 -3
```

Example 2:

 `# R program to calculate median of a vector ` ` `  `# Creating vector ` `x <``-` `c(``2``, ``3``, ``5``, NA, ``4``, NA, ``6``) ` ` `  `# Calling median() function ` `# with NA values included ` `median(x, na.rm ``=` `FALSE) ` ` `  `# Calling median() function ` `# with NA values excluded ` `median(x, na.rm ``=` `TRUE) `

Output:

``` NA
