    Computes the central tendency of the data values in a data set.

    datatype_icon

    x

    Data set.

    datatype_icon

    type

    Type of mean to compute.

    Name Description
    arithmetic Computes the arithmetic mean of the data set.
    geometric Computes the geometric mean of the data set.
    harmonic Computes the harmonic mean of the data set.
    trimmed Computes the arithmetic mean of the data set after removing the percentage of potential outliers that percent specifies.
    median Computes the central value of the data set. The median value also is the 50th percentile.

    Default: arithmetic

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    percent

    Percentage of data to trim before computing the trimmed mean.

    Use this input to ignore outlier values in x. This node trims the percentage you specify from both the lowest and highest values of x. Thus, the total amount trimmed equals twice the value of percent.

    Default: 25

    datatype_icon

    mean value

    Mean measure of the data in the input data set.

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
