Dear,
I have "T_mon" which is 1X12 cell array (January to December). Each column includes another cell array (1x13), (1x12),...(1x11). For every column in 1X12 cell array, I want to get mean of T_mon{1, 1}, T_mon{1, 2} ... up to T_mon{1, 12}, to be a double within a cell 1x12. How can I do this?
This cell within the cell is coming from this piece of for loop I wrote. It might not be very clever way of doing this.
for i = 1 : 12
A = T_mon{i};
T_mean{i} = cellfun(@(x) nanmean(x,2), A,'UniformOutput',false);
end

So what data do you want to get the mean from? Can you show a small example? Do you want to calculate the mean of all values in T_mon{1}?

You will need to have two loops, looping over i and j.
for i = 1:length(T_mon)
for j = 1:length(T_mon{1,i})
M(i,j) = mean(T_mon{1,i}{1,j});
end
end
I noticed that there are cells that have different sizes, so I included that with length.

It is what I expacted
for jj = 1 : length(T_mon)
A = T_mon{jj};
N = cellfun(@numel, A);
M = max(N);
A_new = cell2mat(cellfun(@(x) [x; nan(M - numel(x),1)],A,'uni',0));
B = nanmean(A_new,2);
C{jj}=B;
end

for i = 1:length(T_mon)
for j = 1:length(T_mon{1,i})
M(i,j) = sum(T_mon{1,i}{1,j});
end
end
A = nanmean(M,2); % mean value of rows
A = A'
I hope I understood well what you wanted.
Edit: didn't know that 'nanmean' existed.
