Difference between "average" and "mean"

From what I've read, "average" and "mean" seem to be the same measurement.  Is there any case where they refer to different measurements?

Thanks.

Hi pw05,

Generally arithmetic mean is called average.

They're generally used interchangeably — so, unless specified otherwise, you can merely assume that by "mean" they mean "average", and vice versa.
