# statsmodels.stats.weightstats.DescrStatsW¶

class `statsmodels.stats.weightstats.``DescrStatsW`(data, weights=None, ddof=0)[source]

descriptive statistics and tests with weights for case weights

Assumes that the data is 1d or 2d with (nobs, nvars) observations in rows, variables in columns, and that the same weight applies to each column.

If degrees of freedom correction is used, then weights should add up to the number of observations. ttest also assumes that the sum of weights corresponds to the sample size.

This is essentially the same as replicating each observations by its weight, if the weights are integers, often called case or frequency weights.

Parameters: data : array_like, 1-D or 2-D dataset weights : None or 1-D ndarray weights for each observation, with same length as zero axis of data ddof : int default ddof=0, degrees of freedom correction used for second moments, var, std, cov, corrcoef. However, statistical tests are independent of ddof, based on the standard formulas.

Examples

Note: I don’t know the seed for the following, so the numbers will differ

```>>> x1_2d = 1.0 + np.random.randn(20, 3)
>>> w1 = np.random.randint(1,4, 20)
>>> d1 = DescrStatsW(x1_2d, weights=w1)
>>> d1.mean
array([ 1.42739844,  1.23174284,  1.083753  ])
>>> d1.var
array([ 0.94855633,  0.52074626,  1.12309325])
>>> d1.std_mean
array([ 0.14682676,  0.10878944,  0.15976497])
```
```>>> tstat, pval, df = d1.ttest_mean(0)
>>> tstat; pval; df
array([  9.72165021,  11.32226471,   6.78342055])
array([  1.58414212e-12,   1.26536887e-14,   2.37623126e-08])
44.0
```
```>>> tstat, pval, df = d1.ttest_mean([0, 1, 1])
>>> tstat; pval; df
array([ 9.72165021,  2.13019609,  0.52422632])
array([  1.58414212e-12,   3.87842808e-02,   6.02752170e-01])
44.0
```

#if weiqhts are integers, then asrepeats can be used

```>>> x1r = d1.asrepeats()
>>> x1r.shape
...
>>> stats.ttest_1samp(x1r, [0, 1, 1])
...
```
