Calculate the standard deviation for a population.

`STDEVPA(value1,value2,value3,...[up to 30 values])`

- number1 - required, first number or reference in the sample
- number2 - [OPTIONAL], second number or reference in the sample

`=STDEVPA(A3:A12)`

The STDEVPA function is used to calculate the standard deviation of a set of data points. For example, if you have a set of breaking strength values in a range of cells from A3 to A12, you can use the function to calculate the standard deviation of those values.

`=STDEVPA(A3:A12)`

The STDEVPA function can also be used to calculate the standard deviation of data points within a column. For example, if you have a column of breaking strength values in column A starting at row 3, you can use the function to calculate the standard deviation of those values.

`=STDEVPA(A3:B12)`

The STDEVPA function can also be used to calculate the standard deviation of data points within a range of cells. For example, if you have a range of breaking strength values in cells A3 to B12, you can use the function to calculate the standard deviation of those values.

`=STDEVPA(A3:A12)`

The STDEVPA function can also be used to calculate the standard deviation of data points within a range of rows. For example, if you have a range of breaking strength values in row 3 to row 12 in column A, you can use the function to calculate the standard deviation of those values.

The STDEVPA function calculates the population standard deviation for a set of up to 30 values in a Sourcetable worksheet. It ignores blank cells, TRUE, FALSE and text strings, making it suitable for completely numeric data.

- The STDEVPA function evaluates text and logicals as numbers in the calculation, meaning that it can take into account values that are not numerical, such as TRUE and FALSE.
- The STDEVPA function is used to estimate the standard deviation of a population of data.

The STDEVPA function is a statistical function used to calculate the standard deviation of a population. It takes numerical, text, array, or references to array arguments.

The STDEVPA function uses the "n" method to calculate the standard deviation. It assumes all arguments are part of the population.
