**function**VAR_POP() can be used instead. Variance

**is**calculated by. working out the mean for the set. for each number, subtracting the mean and squaring the result. calculate the average of the resulting differences.

Also, what is variance in statistics?

In probability theory and **statistics**, **variance** is the expectation of the squared deviation of a random variable from its mean. Informally, it measures how far a set of (random) numbers are spread out from their average value.

Also, how do you find the variance in statistics? To calculate the **variance** follow these steps: Work out the Mean (the simple average of the numbers) Then for each number: subtract the Mean and square the result (the squared difference). Then work out the average of those squared differences.

Also asked, what is variance and standard deviation?

The **variance** (symbolized by S^{2}) and **standard deviation** (the square root of the **variance**, symbolized by S) are the most commonly used measures of spread. We know that **variance** is a measure of how spread out a data set is. It is calculated as the average squared **deviation** of each number from the mean of a data set.

What is standard deviation in SQL?

**SQL** Server Rider **standard deviation** shows how much variation exists from the average or mean. In other words, it is the square root of the variance. Formula for computing **standard deviation** using sample data: Formula for computing **standard deviation** using entire population data: Image source.
