statsmodels.stats.gof.gof_chisquare_discrete

statsmodels.stats.gof.gof_chisquare_discrete(distfn, arg, rvs, alpha, msg)[source]

perform chisquare test for random sample of a discrete distribution

Parameters
  • distname (string) – name of distribution function

  • arg (sequence) – parameters of distribution

  • alpha (float) – significance level, threshold for p-value

Returns

result – 0 if test passes, 1 if test fails

Return type

bool

Notes

originally written for scipy.stats test suite, still needs to be checked for standalone usage, insufficient input checking may not run yet (after copy/paste)

refactor: maybe a class, check returns, or separate binning from
