Calculates the kurtosis of a dataset, which describes the shape, and in particular the "peakedness" of that dataset.

• What is the KURT formula?

• What does the KURT formula do?

• How do I input the KURT formula into Google Sheets?

• The KURT formula can be used to calculate kurtosis, which is a measure of the degree of peakedness or flatness of a specific set of data.

• It can be used to identify how closely a data set conforms to the normal distribution.

• The KURT formula may be mistyped in various ways, such as KURT(), KURTOSIS(), or KURTOSIS.

• The KURT formula should only be used to calculate kurtosis. It should not be used to calculate standard deviation or other metrics.

• The KURT formula should never be used to determine the central tendency of a set of data.

• The KURT formula will only be accurate if the data entered contains at least five values.

• The KURT formula cannot be used if the data contains any missing values.

• Inputting the wrong data type into the KURT formula. The KURT formula should only be used with numerical data types, not strings or dates.

• Re-using the same formula for different datasets without ensuring that each dataset has the appropriate number of values.

• That the KURT formula is used to calculate the central tendency of a dataset, when it is only used to calculate kurtosis.

• That the KURT formula can be used with any number of values, when it must have at least five values to be accurately calculated.
