You use what serves your goal the best.

If your country has a super-super-rich elite, you use average if you want to show how rich your country is. You use mean if you rather want to fight for social reform in your country.

If you are a teenager, your parents will use the average age of sexual debut to tell you that your are too young to go to bed with your lover. You will argue that more than half of the kids your age have an erotic life.

Here in Norway, the standard of living is so high that very few people ever reach it.
