The Coefficient of Variation (CV in short) is a typical measure of variation, which measures the *relative* variation in a sample with respect to the size of the mean. Indeed, it consider the size of the sample standard deviation in relative terms to the sample mean. The larger the CV, the more disperse the sample is, at least in relative terms.

The coefficient of variation is computed using the following formula

\[CV= \frac{ s}{ \bar X}\]If what you need is to have a complete treatment of all the basic descriptive measures, including sample mean, variance, standard deviation, median, quartiles, etc, you can try our descriptive statistics calculator.
