nanmedian

Median ignoring NaN values

Syntax

y = nanmedian(X)
y = nanmedian(X,dim)

Description

y = nanmedian(X) is the median of X, computed after removing NaN values.

For vectors x, nanmedian(x) is the median of the remaining elements, once NaN values are removed. For matrices X, nanmedian(X) is a row vector of column medians, once NaN values are removed. For multidimensional arrays X, nanmedian operates along the first nonsingleton dimension.

y = nanmedian(X,dim) takes the mean along dimension dim of X.

Examples

Find column medians for data with missing values:

X = magic(3);
X([1 6:9]) = repmat(NaN,1,5)
X =
   NaN     1   NaN
     3     5   NaN
     4   NaN   NaN
y = nanmedian(X)
y =
   3.5000  3.0000  NaN
