Basic statistics 101. Median is central value when all cases are ordered. Obviously if my age variable is all whole number numbers then my median will also be a whole number.

The frequencies, means, and tables procedures all result in integer values such as 16.00, 17.00. I'm trying to determine the median age at first intercourse amongst various age groups, and integer values as useless to me. Thanks for your help ```
