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. See Examples below.
Return Value
Decimal: the computed standard deviation of the values in some-list.
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
STDEVP(LIST(0) - LIST(0))
(a valid constructed list with a type but no items): 0
Potential 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))
.
STDEVP(LIST())
: the constructed list has no items from which to determine type.
