**UsableStats Population versus Sample Standard Deviation**

Sample Standard Deviation (One or more elements from a data set - but not 100% of elements - e.g 100 out of 300 students taking a computer class) Sometimes it is not possible to capture all the data from a population, so we use a sample....

**UsableStats Population versus Sample Standard Deviation**

Here we are calculating Standard deviation only for the sample of the data set, which is taken out from a large population, therefore we need to select either of them i.e. STDEV.S or STDEV. Let’s STDEV.S (for a sample) from the Statistical category. Double click on STDEV.S in excel....
