We already know that an Assembler can earn between 137,400 AFN and 472,100 AFN on average in Afghanistan. This is known as the range in statistics.
The difference between the maximum and minimum values is a good indicator of variability in salaries, and can be used by employers to figure out how much they can expect to pay, and for employees to know how much they can earn.

What this means is that approximately 50% of the population earn less than 320,500 AFN, and 50% of the population earn more than 320,500 AFN.
If you are earning more than the median salary, that's a good indicator that you are being paid well.
If you're not earning more than the median salary, your objective should be to increase your earnings to be at least as high as the median salary (which you can do by asking for a pay rise, looking for a better paying job, etc).

The median and average salary are both indicators you can use to see if you are being paid fairly based on the overall population.
