ProbPlot.qqplot(xlabel=None, ylabel=None, line=None, other=None, ax=None, **plotkwargs)[source]

Q-Q plot of the quantiles of x versus the quantiles/ppf of a distribution or the quantiles of another ProbPlot instance.

  • ylabel (xlabel,) – User-provided lables for the x-axis and y-axis. If None (default), other values are used depending on the status of the kwarg other.
  • line (str {'45', 's', 'r', q'} or None, optional) –

    Options for the reference line to which the data is compared:

    • ‘45’ - 45-degree line
    • ’s‘ - standardized line, the expected order statistics are scaled by the standard deviation of the given sample and have the mean added to them
    • ’r’ - A regression line is fit
    • ’q’ - A line is fit through the quartiles.
    • None - by default no reference line is added to the plot.
  • other (ProbPlot instance, array-like, or None, optional) – If provided, the sample quantiles of this ProbPlot instance are plotted against the sample quantiles of the other ProbPlot instance. If an array-like object is provided, it will be turned into a ProbPlot instance using default parameters. If not provided (default), the theoretical quantiles are used.
  • ax (Matplotlib AxesSubplot instance, optional) – If given, this subplot is used to plot in instead of a new figure being created.
  • **plotkwargs (additional matplotlib arguments to be passed to the) – plot command.

fig – If ax is None, the created figure. Otherwise the figure to which ax is connected.

Return type:

Matplotlib figure instance
