DescStatUV.test_skew(skew0, return_weights=False)[source]

Returns -2 x log-likelihood and p-value for the hypothesized skewness.

Parameters: skew0 (float) – Skewness value to be tested return_weights (bool) – If True, function also returns the weights that maximize the likelihood ratio. Default is False. test_results – The log-likelihood ratio and p_value of skew0 tuple
