Stdevp
The Population Standard Deviation of the selection.
The Stdevp deals with the complete population whereas Stdev deals with a population sample only.
The formula:
Sample 1:
Population: A set of data that is all inclusive.
Populations are often very large. For simplicity, imagine the following as an example:
12,6,12
Compute the Stdevp:
Steps:
1. Determine the mean of the sample
12+6+12/3=10
2. Square the difference between each item and the mean
(1210)^2 =4
(610)^2 =16
(1210)^2 =4
3. Calculate the average
4+16+4/3=24/3
4. Calculate the square root
√8 or 2.8284
