STDEVPA

Calculates the standard deviation based on an entire population, setting text to the value `0`.

Sample Usage

STDEVPA(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10)

STDEVPA(A2:A100)

Syntax

STDEVPA(value1, [value2, ...])

  • value1 - The first value or range of the population.

  • value2, ... - Additional values or ranges to include in the population.

Notes

  • Although STDEVPA is specified as taking a maximum of 30 arguments, Google Sheets supports an arbitrary number of arguments for this function.

  • If the total number of values supplied as value arguments is not at least two, STDEVPA will return the #DIV/0! error.

  • STDEVPA sets each text value encountered to 0 for the purpose of calculation. To return an error upon encountering text, use STDEVP.

  • STDEVPA calculates standard deviation for an entire population. To calculate standard deviation across a sample, use STDEV.

  • STDEVPA is equivalent to the square root of the variance, or SQRT(VARPA(...)) using the same dataset.
