# STDEVP

Calculates the standard deviation based on an entire population.

### 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 data set.

`VARPA`: Calculates the variance based on an entire population, setting text to the value '0'.

`VARP`: Calculates the variance based on an entire population.

`VARA`: Calculates the variance based on a sample, setting text to the value '0'.

`VAR`: Calculates the variance based on a sample.

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

`STDEVA`: Calculates the standard deviation based on a sample, setting text to the value `0`.

`STDEV`: The STDEV function calculates the standard deviation based on a sample.

`SKEW`: Calculates the skewness of a data set, which describes the symmetry of that data set about the mean.

`KURT`: Calculates the kurtosis of a data set, which describes the shape and in particular the 'peakedness' of that data set.

`DVARP`: Returns the variance of an entire population selected from a database table-like array or range using an SQL-like query.

`DVAR`: Returns the variance of a population sample selected from a database table-like array or range using an SQL-like query.

`DSTDEVP`: Returns the standard deviation of an entire population selected from a database table-like array or range using an SQL-like query.

`DSTDEV`: Returns the standard deviation of a population sample selected from a database table-like array or range using an SQL-like query.

`DEVSQ`: Calculates the sum of squares of deviations based on a sample.

`AVEDEV`: Calculates the average of the magnitude of deviations of data from a data set's mean.
