• Last Updated : 10 Feb, 2019

`scipy.stats.describe(array, axis=0)` computes the descriptive statistics of the passed array elements along the specified axis of the array.

Parameters :
array: Input array or object having the elements to calculate the statistics.
axis: Axis along which the statistics is to be computed. By default axis = 0.

Returns : Statistics of the array elements based on the set parameters.

Code #1:

 `# FInding statistics of data`` ` `from` `scipy ``import` `stats`` ` `arr1 ``=` `[``9``, ``3``, ``27``] ``  ` `desc ``=` `stats.describe(arr1)`` ` `print``(``"No. of observations is :\n"``, desc) `
Output:

No. of observations is :
DescribeResult(nobs=3, minmax=(3, 27), mean=13.0, variance=156.0, skewness=0.5280049792181878, kurtosis=-1.5)

Code #2: With multi-dimensional data

 `# FInding statistics of data`` ` `from` `scipy ``import` `stats`` ` `arr1 ``=` `[[``1``, ``3``, ``27``], ``        ``[``3``, ``4``, ``6``], ``        ``[``7``, ``6``, ``3``], ``        ``[``3``, ``6``, ``8``]] ``  ` `desc ``=` `stats.describe(arr1, axis ``=` `0``)`` ` ` ` `print``(``"No. of observations at axis = 0 :\n\n"``, desc)`` ` ` ` `print``(``"\n\nNo. of observations at axis = 1 :\n\n"``, desc)`
Output:

No. of observations at axis = 0 :

DescribeResult(nobs=4, minmax=(array([1, 3, 3]), array([ 7, 6, 27])), mean=array([ 3.5 , 4.75, 11. ]), variance=array([ 6.33333333, 2.25 , 118. ]), skewness=array([ 0.65202366, -0.21383343, 1.03055786]), kurtosis=array([-0.90304709, -1.72016461, -0.75485971]))

No. of observations at axis = 1 :

DescribeResult(nobs=4, minmax=(array([1, 3, 3]), array([ 7, 6, 27])), mean=array([ 3.5 , 4.75, 11. ]), variance=array([ 6.33333333, 2.25 , 118. ]), skewness=array([ 0.65202366, -0.21383343, 1.03055786]), kurtosis=array([-0.90304709, -1.72016461, -0.75485971]))
