## What variance is acceptable?

What are acceptable variances? The only answer that can be given to this question is, It all depends. If you are doing a well-defined construction job, the variances can be in the range of 35 percent. If the job is research and development, acceptable variances increase generally to around 1015 percent.

**What is a good explained variance score?**

It should not be less than 60%. If the variance explained is 35%, it shows the data is not useful, and may need to revisit measures, and even the data collection process. If the variance explained is less than 60%, there are most likely chances of more factors showing up than the expected factors in a model.

### What is a good R squared value?

Any study that attempts to predict human behavior will tend to have R-squared values less than 50%. However, if you analyze a physical process and have very good measurements, you might expect R-squared values over 90%.

**What does explained variance tell you?**

Explained variance (also called explained variation) is used to measure the discrepancy between a model and actual data. In other words, it’s the part of the model’s total variance that is explained by factors that are actually present and isn’t due to error variance.

#### What does the variance tell us?

Variance measures how far a set of data is spread out. A variance of zero indicates that all of the data values are identical. A high variance indicates that the data points are very spread out from the mean, and from one another. Variance is the average of the squared distances from each point to the mean.

**Why is standard deviation better than variance?**

Standard deviation and variance are closely related descriptive statistics, though standard deviation is more commonly used because it is more intuitive with respect to units of measurement; variance is reported in the squared values of units of measurement, whereas standard deviation is reported in the same units as …

## Why is standard deviation square root of variance?

Standard deviation (S) = square root of the variance Because of its close links with the mean, standard deviation can be greatly affected if the mean gives a poor measure of central tendency. Standard deviation is also influenced by outliers one value could contribute largely to the results of the standard deviation.

**Is risk standard deviation or variance?**

In investing, standard deviation is used as an indicator of market volatility and thus of risk. The more unpredictable the price action and the wider the range, the greater the risk.

### Is a high standard deviation bad?

A standard deviation (or σ) is a measure of how dispersed the data is in relation to the mean. Low standard deviation means data are clustered around the mean, and high standard deviation indicates data are more spread out.

**How do you find variance without data set?**

Follow these steps: Work out the mean (the simple average of the numbers.) Then, for each number, subtract the mean and square the result (the squared difference). Finally, work out the average of those squared differences. If the coefficient of variance is 16 and mean is 25, how do I find the variance?
