Standard Deviation and Mean

Use the Standard Deviation Calculator to calculate your sample's standard deviation and mean.

Caution: you should really use the standard deviation of the entire population!

But you can use the standard deviation of your sample if you have a large enough sample: at least n=30, the more the better.
