, tol=1e-08, scale_est='mad', init=None, cov='H1', update_scale=True, conv='dev')[source]

Fits the model using iteratively reweighted least squares.

The IRLS routine runs until the specified objective converges to tol or maxiter has been reached.

  • conv (string) – Indicates the convergence criteria. Available options are “coefs” (the coefficients), “weights” (the weights in the iteration), “sresid” (the standardized residuals), and “dev” (the un-normalized log-likelihood for the M estimator). The default is “dev”.
  • cov (string, optional) – ‘H1’, ‘H2’, or ‘H3’ Indicates how the covariance matrix is estimated. Default is ‘H1’. See rlm.RLMResults for more information.
  • init (string) – Specifies method for the initial estimates of the parameters. Default is None, which means that the least squares estimate is used. Currently it is the only available choice.
  • maxiter (int) – The maximum number of iterations to try. Default is 50.
  • scale_est (string or HuberScale()) – ‘mad’ or HuberScale() Indicates the estimate to use for scaling the weights in the IRLS. The default is ‘mad’ (median absolute deviation. Other options are ‘HuberScale’ for Huber’s proposal 2. Huber’s proposal 2 has optional keyword arguments d, tol, and maxiter for specifying the tuning constant, the convergence tolerance, and the maximum number of iterations. See statsmodels.robust.scale for more information.
  • tol (float) – The convergence tolerance of the estimate. Default is 1e-8.
  • update_scale (Bool) – If update_scale is False then the scale estimate for the weights is held constant over the iteration. Otherwise, it is updated for each fit in the iteration. Default is True.
