scipy stats.moment() function | Python

scipy.stats.moment(array, axis=0) function calculates the nth moment about the mean for a sample i.e. array elements along the specified axis of the array (list in python).


Its formula –

Parameters :
array : Input array or object having the elements to calculate the moment.
axis : Axis along which the moment is to be computed. By default axis = 0.
moment : Order of central moment that is returned.



Returns : n-th central moment of the array elements based on the set parameters.

# Moment
from scipy import stats
import numpy as np 
  
arr1 = np.array([[1, 31, 27, 13, 21, 9],
                [8, 12, 8, 4, 7, 10]]) 
   
  
print("Oth moment : \n", stats.moment(arr1, moment = 0))

Output :

Oth moment :
