 The variance of n sample values \(x_1\), \(x_2\), ... , \(x_n\) is one measure of statistical dispersion, obtained by averaging the squared distance of the sample values from the expected value (mean). The mean captures the location of a distribution and the variance captures the degree of the values being spread out. The square root of the variance is called the standard deviation.  ​ The variance of n sample values \(x_1\), \(x_2\), ... , \(x_n\) is one measure of statistical dispersion, obtained by averaging the squared distance of the sample values from the expected value (mean).
