## 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* or *EnumList*.

`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

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

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,

*must be one of the following: a column value of type*

`some-list`

`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*.
