Pearson's Rule for Sample Medians
Terrell, George R.
Pearson's rule (median-mode) = 2(mean-median) has long been observed to be approximately true for slightly skewed densities. Under mild conditions, the rule is asymptotically true for densities of sample medians for independently identically distributed random samples. This complements previous results that established the rule asymptotically for sample means.
