    <h1>Retreive the hourly wage in the middle of the wage distribution</h1>
    </div>

    
    <p>The median wage is the hourly wage in the middle of the wage distribution;
50 percent of wage earners earn less and 50 percent earn more. The average wage is
the arithmetic mean of hourly wages; or, the sum of all workers&#39; hourly wages divided
by the number of workers.</p>
