The VariancePopulation Aggregate defined in Table 51 retrieves the square of the standard deviation. Its behaviour is the same as the StandardDeviationPopulation Aggregate. Unless otherwise indicated, qualities are Good, Calculated.
This calculation is for a full population where the calculation is done on the full set of data. Use VarianceSample to calculate the variance of a subset of the full population (5.4.3.38).
