Version: 1 | Requires: CF5 | Library: MathLib

Description:
Returns the coefficient of variation for a set of values (entire population). The CV is a measure of relative dispersion and is calculated by dividing the standard deviation by the mean and multiplying the result by 100 to arrive at a percentage.

Return Values:
Returns a simple value

Example:

<CFSET Values="1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10"> 

  <CFOUTPUT>
  Given <CFIF IsArray(Values)>{#ArrayToList(Values)#}<CFELSE>{#Values#}</CFIF>
  The coefficient of variation for the population is #CVpop(values)#
  </CFOUTPUT>

Parameters:

Name Description Required
values Comma delimited list or one dimensional array of numeric values. Yes
