# How do you find the Z score?

To find the Z score of a sample, you'll need to find the mean, variance and standard deviation of the sample. To calculate the z-score, you will find the difference between a value in the sample and the mean, and divide it by the standard deviation.

Keeping this in consideration, what does Z stand for in statistics?

z-score. A z-score (aka, a standard score) indicates how many standard deviations an element is from the mean. A z-score can be calculated from the following formula. z = (X - μ) / σ where z is the z-score, X is the value of the element, μ is the population mean, and σ is the standard deviation.

What does the Z score tell you?

Simply put, a z-score is the number of standard deviations from the mean a data point is. But more technically it's a measure of how many standard deviations below or above the population mean a raw score is. A z-score is also known as a standard score and it can be placed on a normal distribution curve.

What is Z in probability?

It is also called Gaussian distribution. The normal distribution density function f(z) is called the Bell Curve because it has the shape that resembles a bell. Standard normal distribution table is used to find the area under the f(z) function in order to find the probability of a specified range of distribution.
