Standard Deviation normalization of data in data mining
Just like the Z score, and Min-Max, data can also be normalized with standard deviation.
Different values in the data set can be spread here and there from the mean. Variance tells us how much far away are the values from the mean.
Standard deviation is the square root of the variance.
High standard deviation
High standard deviation tells us that more numbers are far away from the mean.
Low standard deviation
Low standard deviation tells us that fewer numbers are far away from the mean.
