Computing the standardization of a numeric column

The standardization of a column subtracts the sample average and divides by the sample standard deviation, so that the resulting column has an average of 0 and a standard deviation of 1. The standardization can be useful when the relative values of a column are of interest (for example, with test scores).

To compute the standardization of a column:

  1. In the Summary view, select the column you wish to standardize
  2. Choose Column > Standardize
