This article presents the weighted data features of the standard deviational curve (SDC). Similar data features exist for the standard deviational ellipse (SDE). This paper presents weighted data features for the SDC which include the angle of rotation, the minimum and maximum standard deviation, the area, and the circulatory index. Performed correctly, weighted features give a better use of the areal data points. The additional computations of weighted data features are no more difficult than those of the unweighted data features.
