C Program To Compute Standard Deviation For Non-Grouped Data

The standard deviation is a measure to understand how much data deviates from the mean value. The data may be grouped or non-grouped where non-group data is a list of data.

In this example program, we compute the standard deviation for input non-grouped data and output the result.

Learn the basics of C programming before you begin with this example. Continue reading if you know the basics.

In the next section, we will discuss the problem in detail.

Problem Definition

The standard deviation is a measure useful in comparing two sets of data when their mean value is the same. To calculate the standard deviation we use the following formula in this example C program.

SD = \sqrt{\frac{(x - \overline{x})^2}{n}}

Where \overline{x} is the mean value.

Given the formula, you can find standard deviation in the following steps.
