The d3.deviation() function in D3.js is used to return the standard deviation of the given array’s elements. If the array is having less than two elements then it returns undefined.

Syntax:

d3.deviation(Array)

Parameters: This function accepts a parameters Array which is an array of elements whose standard deviation are to be calculated. Here elements should be integers not string otherwise it returns undefined.

Return Value: It returns the standard deviation of the given array’s element.

Below programs illustrate the d3.deviation() function in D3.js.
Example 1:




<html>
  
<head>
    <title>
      Getting standard deviation of 
      the elements of given array
  </title>
</head>
  
<body>
    <script src='https://d3js.org/d3.v4.min.js'>
  </script>
  
    <script>
        // initialising the array of elements
        var Array1 = [10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60];
        var Array2 = [1, 2];
        var Array3 = [0, 1.5, 6.8];
        var Array4 = [.8, .08, .008];
  
        // Calling to d3.deviation() function
        A = d3.deviation(Array1);
        B = d3.deviation(Array2);
        C = d3.deviation(Array3);
        D = d3.deviation(Array4);
  
        // Getting standard deviation of the given array's element
        document.write(A + "<br>");
        document.write(B + "<br>");
        document.write(C + "<br>");
        document.write(D + "<br>");
    </script>
</body>
  
</html>

Output:

18.708286933869708
0.7071067811865476
3.572580766523457
0.4379589021814719

Example 2:




<html>
  
<head>
    <title>
      Getting standard deviation
      of the elements of given array
  </title>
</head>
  
<body>
    <script src='https://d3js.org/d3.v4.min.js'>
  </script>
  
    <script>
        // initialising the array of elements
        var Array1 = [1];
        var Array2 = ["a", "b", "c"];
        var Array3 = [1, 2, "B", "C"];
        var Array4 = ["Geek", "Geeks", 2, 3, "GeeksforGeeks"];
  
        // Calling to d3.deviation() function
        A = d3.deviation(Array1);
        B = d3.deviation(Array2);
        C = d3.deviation(Array3);
        D = d3.deviation(Array4);
  
        // Getting standard deviation of
        // the given array's element
        document.write(A + "<br>");
        document.write(B + "<br>");
        document.write(C + "<br>");
        document.write(D + "<br>");
    </script>
</body>
  
</html>

Output:

undefined
undefined
0.7071067811865476
0.7071067811865476

Note: In the above output, if the parameter is having less than one elements or strings then it returns undefined and if the parameter is having string including some integers value then the standard deviation of the integer’s value is returned.
