The z-score can be calculated by subtracting the population mean from the raw score, or data point in question (a test score, height, age, etc.), then dividing the difference by the population standard deviation:

z =
 x - μ σ
 where x is the raw score, μ is thepopulation mean, and σ is the population standard deviation.

The z-score has numerous applications and can be used to perform a z-test, calculate prediction intervals, process control applications, comparison of scores on different scales, and more.
