Who is it for

This is an open-access Excel template that is going to be very helpful for Data Scientists, Data Analysts, Business Analysts and anyone who wants to know how to use sample variance and population variance.

How it can help you

Variance measures the dispersion of a set of data points around their mean. In this template, you will notice that the variance of a dataset, called Population, is different depending on whether we consider it as a sample, or as the entire population. If we instead imagine that Population is a sample from a population, called Imaginary population, then we can calculate the mean and population variance of this latter bigger dataset.
