KURT
Definition/Description of Formula:
Calculates the kurtosis of a dataset, which describes the shape, and in particular the "peakedness" of that dataset.
Syntax:
KURT(value1, value2, ...)
value1
 The first value or range of the dataset.value2, ...
 Additional values or ranges to include in the dataset.
Notes
 Although
KURT
is specified as taking a maximum of 30 arguments, Google Sheets supports an arbitrary number of arguments for this function.  If the total number of values supplied as
value
arguments is not at least two,KURT
will return the#NUM!
error.  Any text encountered in the
value
arguments will be ignored.  Positive kurtosis indicates a more "peaked" distribution in the dataset, while negative kurtosis indicates a flatter distribution.
