    How to decide on when to compute Mean, Median and Mode? Does it depend upon any particular type of data? Pl clarify.

    It depends on what it is that you want to do – that is – what question you want to answer. If it is a matter of characterizing a distribution with a series of statistical summaries then the answer is all 3 along with a measure of spread (usually the standard deviation) and a sense of the size of the sample – (usually n).

    well stated @rbutler

    @pravin25 Minitab and other packages will calculate all stats–just always be sure to look at things like histograms, time series, etc.
