The given information is that, a social support survey was conducted to know how well it is supporting individuals suffering from stroke-induced aphasia felt more than 1 year following the stroke, reported that "in terms of social support, the SSS scores" are negatively skewed mean 3.69.
Median:
In a distribution, the center value of the data, which are listed in numeric order, is termed as median. To estimate the value of the median the 50-th percentile of a cumulative percent distribution can be used.
The median is not effected by the outliers in the data but the mean value is affected. It is used to explain the data which are skewed distributions and ordinal scale data.
Hence, the median is the additional measure of central tendency that is a appropriate to report with these data based on their findings.
