[archive] standard deviation

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 19 March 2003]

For our laboratory application we often calculate the standard deviation.
The intrinsic function "standard-deviation" within AcuCobol calculates using the "biased" or "n" method.
Instead we would like to have an intrinsic function that calculates the standard deviation using the "nonbiased" or "n-1" method.
Is it possible that AcuCobol makes an intrinsic function for standard deviation using the "nonbiased" or "n-1" method?
