# standard deviation

Can we do it in a way that. we calculate standard deviation of each company for values EBIT_TA from the available years from 2007-2010. Then put that value of standard deviation of each company in a new column Std(EBIT_TA). This will provide a one value for each company. here is my data.

## Re: standard deviation

Thanks @Ksharp. I got this in a separate table in sql format. How can I merge this back into initial table?

## Re: standard deviation

try the following, code not tested.

proc sql;
select b.*,std
from (
select Global_Company_Key,Std(EBIT_TA) as std
from new
where year in (2007:2010)
group by Global_Company_Key
) as a
right join
new as b
on a.Global_Company_Key=b.Global_Company_Key
;

## Re: standard deviation

EBIT_TA takes negative values in your example. STD can  be computed on positive values by convention. Do you STD on absolute values?

## Re: standard deviation

I think if we convert them to positive the results will not be much different. so I think its ok.
