In this tutorial, you will learn to find standard deviation in Google Sheets.

You can determine how far a dataset deviates from the mean by looking at its standard deviation.

To have a better understanding, we can get started by using real-life scenarios to help you understand how to find standard deviation in Google Sheets.

## How To Find Standard Deviation In Google Sheets

Before we begin we will need a group of data to be used to find the standard deviation.

### Step 1

Make sure your group of data is displayed in a clean and tidy manner.

### Step 2

To find the standard deviation, you can use the STDEV function. This is the formula =STDEV(B2:B6).

### Step 3

Once you press ‘Enter’, the standard deviation for this data group will be returned.

### Summary

That’s all there is to it. You are welcome to copy the example spreadsheet below to see how it is done. The most crucial lesson is to enjoy yourself while doing it.
