I have Max() working as in following query and want to find Mean & Median.....

select 'Max' as Func, Max(b.Proc_Cnt) Procedures
from (
select a.Stu_Code, sum(a.proc_cnt) Proc_Cnt
from (
select s.stu_code, t.chart_no, t.last_date, count(*) proc_cnt
from Treatment  t, Student s, Patient p
where s.stu_code = t.provider_id_credited
and p.chart_no = t.chart_no
and t.last_date between '6/30/2009' and '7/1/2010'
and s.clinic_location like 'GRP%'
 and t.njds_code <> '00000'
 and (t.njds_code like 'D%' or t.njds_code like '0%')
and t.njds_code NOT BETWEEN '90000' and '90100'
and (t.chart_no Not Like 'M%' and t.chart_no Not Like 'F%' and t.chart_no <> '292021')
and (t.Activity Not in ('CP','CS','NS') OR t.Activity is Null)
and ((p.group_assignment IS NULL) OR
     (p.group_assignment <> 'MTHN' AND p.group_assignment <> 'NRTF'
  AND p.group_assignment <> 'SOM' AND p.group_assignment <> 'GWY'))
group by s.stu_code, t.chart_no, t.last_date) a
group by a.stu_code
) b

How do I convert above to get Median?

Thanks,
Ashok

Hi,
MEAN can be calculated by using AVG function like:
select 'Max' as Func, Max(b.Proc_Cnt) Procedures
from (
select a.Stu_Code, sum(a.proc_cnt) Proc_Cnt
from (
select s.stu_code, t.chart_no, t.last_date, count(*) proc_cnt
from Treatment  t, Student s, Patient p
where s.stu_code = t.provider_id_credited
and p.chart_no = t.chart_no
and t.last_date between '6/30/2009' and '7/1/2010'
and s.clinic_location like 'GRP%'
 and t.njds_code <> '00000'
 and (t.njds_code like 'D%' or t.njds_code like '0%')
and t.njds_code NOT BETWEEN '90000' and '90100'
and (t.chart_no Not Like 'M%' and t.chart_no Not Like 'F%' and t.chart_no <> '292021')
and (t.Activity Not in ('CP','CS','NS') OR t.Activity is Null)
and ((p.group_assignment IS NULL) OR
     (p.group_assignment <> 'MTHN' AND p.group_assignment <> 'NRTF'
  AND p.group_assignment <> 'SOM' AND p.group_assignment <> 'GWY'))
group by s.stu_code, t.chart_no, t.last_date) a
group by a.stu_code
) b

And Median can be found by using below query:
select 'Median' as Func,
(SELECT top 1 Proc_Cnt FROM
(select top 50 percent Proc_Cnt
from (
select a.Stu_Code, sum(a.proc_cnt) Proc_Cnt
from (
select s.stu_code, t.chart_no, t.last_date, count(*) proc_cnt
from Treatment  t, Student s, Patient p
where s.stu_code = t.provider_id_credited
and p.chart_no = t.chart_no
and t.last_date between '6/30/2009' and '7/1/2010'
and s.clinic_location like 'GRP%'
 and t.njds_code <> '00000'
 and (t.njds_code like 'D%' or t.njds_code like '0%')
and t.njds_code NOT BETWEEN '90000' and '90100'
and (t.chart_no Not Like 'M%' and t.chart_no Not Like 'F%' and t.chart_no <> '292021')
and (t.Activity Not in ('CP','CS','NS') OR t.Activity is Null)
and ((p.group_assignment IS NULL) OR
     (p.group_assignment <> 'MTHN' AND p.group_assignment <> 'NRTF'
  AND p.group_assignment <> 'SOM' AND p.group_assignment <> 'GWY'))
group by s.stu_code, t.chart_no, t.last_date) a
group by a.stu_code
) b ORDER BY Proc_Cnt ) c ORDER BY 1 DESC )
+
(SELECT top 1 Proc_Cnt FROM
(select top 50 percent Proc_Cnt
from (
select a.Stu_Code, sum(a.proc_cnt) Proc_Cnt
from (
select s.stu_code, t.chart_no, t.last_date, count(*) proc_cnt
from Treatment  t, Student s, Patient p
where s.stu_code = t.provider_id_credited
and p.chart_no = t.chart_no
and t.last_date between '6/30/2009' and '7/1/2010'
and s.clinic_location like 'GRP%'
 and t.njds_code <> '00000'
 and (t.njds_code like 'D%' or t.njds_code like '0%')
and t.njds_code NOT BETWEEN '90000' and '90100'
and (t.chart_no Not Like 'M%' and t.chart_no Not Like 'F%' and t.chart_no <> '292021')
and (t.Activity Not in ('CP','CS','NS') OR t.Activity is Null)
and ((p.group_assignment IS NULL) OR
     (p.group_assignment <> 'MTHN' AND p.group_assignment <> 'NRTF'
  AND p.group_assignment <> 'SOM' AND p.group_assignment <> 'GWY'))
group by s.stu_code, t.chart_no, t.last_date) a
group by a.stu_code
) b ORDER BY Proc_Cnt DESC) c ORDER BY 1 )/2


Though it could be better if you put your inner processed result in a temp table and then run the query on that temp table.

MEAN can be calculated by using AVG function like:

I do not see the use of AVG function in above.

I will try the median when I go to work tomorrow morning.

Do I just change SUM to

select 'Avg' as Func, Avg(b.Proc_Cnt) Procedures

in my Max() query?

My mistake. Yes,just change the MAX to AVG in your query and that will provide you the MEAN.

by the way, this did not work for my data.
Median was out of range (not between Min & Max).

Hi,
Logically it should work. But could be some mistake by me. Can you put the result of below two queries:
SELECT top 1 Proc_Cnt FROM 
(select top 50 percent Proc_Cnt 
from (
select a.Stu_Code, sum(a.proc_cnt) Proc_Cnt
from (
select s.stu_code, t.chart_no, t.last_date, count(*) proc_cnt
from Treatment  t, Student s, Patient p
where s.stu_code = t.provider_id_credited
and p.chart_no = t.chart_no 
and t.last_date between '6/30/2009' and '7/1/2010'
and s.clinic_location like 'GRP%'
 and t.njds_code <> '00000'
 and (t.njds_code like 'D%' or t.njds_code like '0%')
and t.njds_code NOT BETWEEN '90000' and '90100'
and (t.chart_no Not Like 'M%' and t.chart_no Not Like 'F%' and t.chart_no <> '292021')
and (t.Activity Not in ('CP','CS','NS') OR t.Activity is Null)
and ((p.group_assignment IS NULL) OR 
     (p.group_assignment <> 'MTHN' AND p.group_assignment <> 'NRTF' 
  AND p.group_assignment <> 'SOM' AND p.group_assignment <> 'GWY'))
group by s.stu_code, t.chart_no, t.last_date) a
group by a.stu_code
) b ORDER BY Proc_Cnt ) c ORDER BY 1 DESC 

SELECT top 1 Proc_Cnt FROM 
(select top 50 percent Proc_Cnt 
from (
select a.Stu_Code, sum(a.proc_cnt) Proc_Cnt
from (
select s.stu_code, t.chart_no, t.last_date, count(*) proc_cnt
from Treatment  t, Student s, Patient p
where s.stu_code = t.provider_id_credited
and p.chart_no = t.chart_no 
and t.last_date between '6/30/2009' and '7/1/2010'
and s.clinic_location like 'GRP%'
 and t.njds_code <> '00000'
 and (t.njds_code like 'D%' or t.njds_code like '0%')
and t.njds_code NOT BETWEEN '90000' and '90100'
and (t.chart_no Not Like 'M%' and t.chart_no Not Like 'F%' and t.chart_no <> '292021')
and (t.Activity Not in ('CP','CS','NS') OR t.Activity is Null)
and ((p.group_assignment IS NULL) OR 
     (p.group_assignment <> 'MTHN' AND p.group_assignment <> 'NRTF' 
  AND p.group_assignment <> 'SOM' AND p.group_assignment <> 'GWY'))
group by s.stu_code, t.chart_no, t.last_date) a
group by a.stu_code
) b ORDER BY Proc_Cnt DESC) c ORDER BY 1
