    x

    Data set.

    datatype_icon

    type

    Type of spread to compute.

    Name Value Description
    standard deviation 0

    Computes the standard deviation, or the square root of the variance, of x. The standard deviation is the most common measure of spread in a data set.

    range 1

    Computes the range, or the difference in the minimum and maximum values, of x.

    mean absolute deviation 2

    Computes the mean of the absolute value of the deviation of x from its mean.

    interquartile rank 3

    Computes the difference between the 25th and 75th percentile of x. This measure of spread therefore is more resistive to outliers than the other measures.

    Default: standard deviation

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs. The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    spread value

    Spread of the input data set.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information. The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported
