Standard Deviation and Mean
Use the Standard Deviation Calculator to calculate your sample's standard deviation and mean.
Caution: you should really use the standard deviation of the entire population!
But you can use the standard deviation of your sample if you have enough observations: at least n=30, the more the better.
How It Is Calculated
The Confidence Interval formula is
X ± Z | s |
√(n) |
Where:
- X is the mean
- Z is the Z-value from the table below
- s is the standard deviation
- n is the number of observations
Z | |
80% | 1.282 |
85% | 1.440 |
90% | 1.645 |
95% | 1.960 |
99% | 2.576 |
99.5% | 2.807 |
99.9% | 3.291 |
