# Standard Deviation Calculator

• Standard deviation is a statistical measure of variation or dispersion between values in a data set or in other words, how much the numbers in the data set are likely to differ from the mean value.
• Our standard deviation calculator is the most sophisticated and comprehensive standard deviation calculator online.
• It does much more than just calculating the standard deviation. It also gives you mean, median, variance, coefficient of variance and much more!
• Just click the "start calculator" button below and get started. Our calculator is very easy to use. # Standard Deviation Calculator

#### What is standard deviation?

Standard deviation, also called “the square root of the variance,” is the statistic that measures the dispersion of a dataset relative to its mean. In layman's terms, it is the measure of how spread out numbers are. Standard deviation uses the Greek letter sigma symbol σ.

Variance is the average of the squared differences from the Mean. The square root of the variance can be calculated by finding each data point's deviation relative to the mean.

To calculate standard deviation, determine first the simple average or the mean of the numbers. Next, subtract the mean for each number, square it, and then average the result to get the variance. Lastly, calculate the square root of the variance, and that is your standard deviation.
