VAR function [MS]

Estimates variance based on a sample.

Syntax

VAR(number1,number2,...)

Number1,number2,...     are 1 to 30 number arguments corresponding to a sample of a population.

Remarks

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

  • Logical values, such as TRUE and FALSE, and text are ignored. If logical values and text must not be ignored, use the VARA function.

  • VAR uses the following formula:
