Variance is a measure of dispersion about the mean. Increasing variance indicates increasing dispersion. Variance is measured in squared units of the original variable.

Summary
riance of a random variable is the expected value (the probability-weighted average) of squared deviations from the random variable’s expected value E(X): σ 2 (X) = E{[X − E(X)] 2 }, where σ 2 (X) stands for the variance of X. <span>Variance is a measure of dispersion about the mean. Increasing variance indicates increasing dispersion. Variance is measured in squared units of the original variable. Standard deviation is the positive square root of variance. Standard deviation measures dispersion (as does variance), but it is measured in the same units as the variab
