Definition

The range of a population or a sample of a population is a measure of spread. For data x ix_i, it is defined as

max(x i)min(x i) \max(x_i) - \min(x_i)

The range of a data set is sensitive to outliers? so is not considered a reliable measure.

Spreadsheet

In a spreadsheet, the formula to calculate the mean of a range is:

=max(<range>) - min(<range>)
