Sample/Population Coefficient of Variation Calculator

Calculate sample/population coefficient of variation step by step

For the given data set, the calculator will find the sample or the population coefficient of variation (CV), with steps shown.


If the calculator did not compute something or you have identified an error, or you have a suggestion/feedback, please write it in the comments below.

Your Input

Find the sample coefficient of variation of $$$8$$$, $$$7$$$, $$$-2$$$, $$$6$$$, $$$3$$$, $$$2$$$.


The sample coefficient of variation of data is given as the ratio of the sample standard deviation $$$s$$$ to the mean $$$\mu$$$: $$$c_{v} = \frac{s}{\mu}$$$.

The mean of the data is $$$\mu = 4$$$ (for steps, see mean calculator).

The population standard deviation of the data is $$$\sigma = \sqrt{14}$$$ (for steps, see standard deviation calculator).

Finally, $$$c_{v} = \frac{4}{\sqrt{14}} = \frac{2 \sqrt{14}}{7}$$$.


The sample coefficient of variation is $$$\frac{2 \sqrt{14}}{7}\approx 1.069044967649698$$$A.
