Suggested answer to exercise: VAS stress from the 2005 questionnaire, part 2, 4

Question 4: Approximately what would the variance of VAS stress be and
in what units should it be reported?

##
Suggested answer

The variance is the square of the standard deviation.
Variance = 19.1^{2} = 365.

Standard deviation is in the same units as the observations, mm.
Hence variance is in the square of the units of the observations,
square mm or mm^{2}
