STDEVP

Calculates the standard deviation based on an entire population.

STDEVP for BigQuery

Calculates the population standard deviation of a data column.

Sample Usage

STDEVP(table_name!price)

Syntax

STDEVP(column)

  • column - The data column of the population.
Tip: Returning population standard deviation across multiple columns is not supported

Sample Usage

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

STDEVP(A2:A100)

Syntax

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

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

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

Notes

  • Although STDEVP 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, STDEVP will return the #DIV/0! error.

  • STDEVP will return an error if any of the value arguments include text. To calculate standard deviation while interpreting text values as 0, use STDEVPA.

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

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