STDEV.S function

STDEV.S(firstParameter, otherParameters...) STDEV.S(firstParameter; otherParameters...)

firstParameter — Number or { Number }

The first parameter.

otherParameters — Number or { Number } (accepts many)

Additional parameters.

Returns — Number

The sample standard deviation of the parameters.

Returns the sample standard deviation of the parameters. STDEV.S(3, 4, 5, 6, 2, 3, 1)STDEV.S(3; 4; 5; 6; 2; 3; 1) returns roughly 1.7.

STDEV.S only accepts numbers, or number arrays. Use STDEVA instead of you also need to evaluate logical values and text strings representing numbers.

Example

STDEV.S(3, 4, 5, 6, 2, 3, 1)STDEV.S(3; 4; 5; 6; 2; 3; 1)

Returns roughly 1.7.
