# statistics.mean() Function in Python – How to Apply (Example Code)

In this tutorial you’ll learn how to apply the mean function of the statistics module in the Python programming language.

## Creation of Example Data

x = [1, 4, 7, 3, 5, 7, 1, 2, 8, 4, 1, 7] # Constructing a list in Python print(x) # Displaying the example list # [1, 4, 7, 3, 5, 7, 1, 2, 8, 4, 1, 7] |

x = [1, 4, 7, 3, 5, 7, 1, 2, 8, 4, 1, 7] # Constructing a list in Python print(x) # Displaying the example list # [1, 4, 7, 3, 5, 7, 1, 2, 8, 4, 1, 7]

## Example: Calculate Mean of List Using mean() Function of statistics Module

import statistics # Load statistics |

import statistics # Load statistics

print(statistics.mean(x)) # Get mean of list # 4.166666666666667 |

print(statistics.mean(x)) # Get mean of list # 4.166666666666667
