I'm working on highly skewed data, so I'm using the median instead of the mean to summarise the central tendency. I'd like to have a measure of dispersion While I often see people reporting mean $\pm$ standard deviation or median$\pm$quartiles to summarise the central tendency, is it ok to report median $\pm$ median absolute dispersion (MAD)? Are there potential issues with this approach?
I would find this approach more compact and intuitive than reporting lower and upper quartiles, especially in large tables full of figures.
Thanks for any hint! Mulone
