Calculates variance based on the entire population.

Syntax

VARP(number1,number2,...)

Number1,number2, ...     are 1 to 30 number arguments corresponding to a population. Logical values, such as TRUE and FALSE, and text are ignored. If logical values and text must not be ignored, use the VARPA function.

Remarks

• VARP assumes that its arguments are the entire population. If your data represents a sample of the population, then compute the variance using VAR.

• The equation for VARP is:

Example

Suppose all 10 tools stamped from the same machine during a production run are collected and measured for breaking strength.

 St1 St2 St3 St4 St5 St6 St7 St8 St9 St10 Formula Description (Result) 1345 1301 1368 1322 1310 1370 1318 1350 1303 1299 =VARP([St1], [St2], [St3], [St4], [St5], [St6], [St7], [St8], [St9], [St10]) Variance of breaking strengths for all the tools, assuming that only 10 tools are produced (678.84)
