Syntax:

STDEV(number1; number2; ... number30)

number1 to number30 are up to 30 numbers or ranges containing numbers.
STDEV returns the standard deviation where number1 to number30 are a sample of the entire population. With N values in the sample, the calculation formula is:

STDEV(2; 6; 4)

Issues:

  • Calc assumes that logical values are 1 (TRUE) and 0 (FALSE). Excel ignores logical values.
