Z-Score Formula

The Z-Score Calculator uses the following formula:

z = (x - μ) / σ


z  is the standard score or Z-score,

x  is the raw score to be standardized,

μ  is the mean of the population,

σ  is the standard deviation of the population.

Z-Score Calculation Example:  The mean of a dataset is 20 and the standard deviation is 7. Find the z-score for a value of 6.

x = 6, μ = 20, σ = 7

z = (6 - 20) / 7

z = -14 / 7 = -2

z = -2
