# ds_list_cv

This script returns the coefficient of variation (CV) for the values in a given list.

The coefficient of variation (CV) is defined as the ratio of the standard deviation $$\sigma$$ to the mean $$\mu$$ :

$$\large c_v = \frac{\sigma}{\mu}$$

It shows the extent of variability in relation to the mean of the population.

ds_list_cv(id[,sample])
Returns the coefficient of variation for the values in a given list.
