How to calculate Population SD and Variance using SAS?



Hi all,

I am learning descriptive statistics using SAS. If we consider the dataset that we are working on as a population then how to know the population sd and variance through proc univariate or proc means. Well what I can see is that both the procedures show the sd and variance after applying bessels correction. (not the population sd). Thanks in advance.
