Statistics¶
The base class Statistics¶
Abstract class for the estimation of statistics from a dataset.
Overview¶
The abstract Statistics
class implements the concept of statistics library.
It is enriched by the EmpiricalStatistics
and ParametricStatistics
.
Construction¶
A Statistics
object is built from a Dataset
and optionally variables names.
In this case,
statistics are only computed for these variables.
Otherwise,
statistics are computed for all the variable available in the dataset.
Lastly,
the user can give a name to its Statistics
object.
By default,
this name is the concatenation of the name of the class overloading Statistics
and the name of the Dataset
.
Capabilities¶
A Statistics
returns standard descriptive and statistical measures
for the different variables:
Statistics.compute_minimum()
: the minimum value,Statistics.compute_maximum()
: the maximum value,Statistics.compute_range()
: the difference between minimum and maximum values,Statistics.compute_mean()
: the expectation (a.k.a. mean value),Statistics.compute_moment()
: a central moment, which is the expected value of a specified integer power of the deviation from the mean,Statistics.compute_variance()
: the variance, which is the mean squared variation around the mean value,Statistics.compute_standard_deviation()
: the standard deviation, which is the square root of the variance,Statistics.compute_variation_coefficient()
: the coefficient of variation, which is the standard deviation normalized by the mean,Statistics.compute_quantile()
: the quantile associated with a probability, which is the cut point diving the range into a first continuous interval with this given probability and a second continuous interval with the complementary probability; common q-quantiles dividing the range into q continuous interval with equal probabilities are also implemented:Statistics.compute_median()
which implements the 2-quantile (50%).Statistics.compute_quartile()
whose order (1, 2 or 3) implements the 4-quantiles (25%, 50% and 75%),Statistics.compute_percentile()
whose order (1, 2, …, 99) implements the 100-quantiles (1%, 2%, …, 99%),
Statistics.compute_probability()
: the probability that the random variable is larger or smaller than a certain threshold,Statistics.compute_tolerance_interval()
: the left-sided, right-sided or both-sided tolerance interval associated with a given coverage level and a given confidence level, which is a statistical interval within which, with some confidence level, a specified proportion of the random variable realizations falls (this proportion is the coverage level)Statistics.compute_a_value()
: the A-value, which is the lower bound of the left-sided tolerance interval associated with a coverage level equal to 99% and a confidence level equal to 95%,Statistics.compute_b_value()
: the B-value, which is the lower bound of the left-sided tolerance interval associated with a coverage level equal to 90% and a confidence level equal to 95%,
- class gemseo.uncertainty.statistics.statistics.Statistics(dataset, variable_names=None, name=None)[source]
A toolbox to compute statistics.
Unless otherwise stated, the statistics are computed variable-wise and component- wise, i.e. variable-by-variable and component-by-component. So, for the sake of readability, the methods named as
