## Examples

`STDEVP(Products[Price])`

: The standard deviation for values in the *Price* column of the *Products* table. Equivalent to `STDEVP(SELECT(Products[Price], TRUE))`

. See also *SELECT()*.

`STDEVP([Discounts])`

: The standard deviation for the items in the *Discounts* column value, where *Discounts* is of type *List*.

`STDEVP(LIST(1, 2, 3))`

: 0.82

#### Common Problems

`STDEVP(1, 2, 3)`

: the arguments are not in list form. To fix, wrap them in *LIST()* to construct a list: `STDEVP(LIST(1, 2, 3))`

.

## Syntax

**STDEVP(** *some-list* **)**

## Arguments

*some-list*(list of any numeric type)

AppSheet must be given enough context to determine what type of values *some-list* contains, that its contents are or will be numeric. To that end, *some-list* must be one of the following: a column value of type *List* that contains numeric values; a column list (e.g., *Products[Price]*) for a column of a numeric type; or a constructed list (e.g., with *LIST()*) of a numeric type.

## Return Value

*Decimal*: the computed standard deviation of the values in *some-list*.
