SPSS manual
SAS manual
This follows in large parts the SPSS manual, which is largely the same as
the SAS manual with different, simpler notation.
Freq, Weight in SAS seems redundant since they always show up as product, SPSS
has only weights.
Notes
-----
This has potential problems with ddof, I started to follow numpy with ddof=0
by default and users can change it, but this might still mess up the t-tests,
since the estimates for the standard deviation will be based on the ddof that
the user chooses.
- fixed ddof for the meandiff ttest, now matches scipy.stats.ttest_ind
Note: scipy has now a separate, pooled variance option in ttest, but I have not
compared yet.

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.

>>> x1_2d = 1.0 + np.random.randn(20, 3)

"""
Compute quantiles for a weighted sample.
Parameters
----------
probs : array_like
A vector of probability points at which to calculate the
quantiles. Each element of `probs` should fall in [0, 1].
return_pandas : bool
If True, return value is a Pandas DataFrame or Series.
Otherwise returns a ndarray.
Returns
-------
quantiles : Series, DataFrame, or ndarray
If `return_pandas` = True, returns one of the following:
* data are 1d, `return_pandas` = True: a Series indexed by
the probability points.
* data are 2d, `return_pandas` = True: a DataFrame with
the probability points as row index and the variables
as column index.
If `return_pandas` = False, returns an ndarray containing the
same values as the Series/DataFrame.
Notes
-----
To compute the quantiles, first, the weights are summed over
exact ties yielding distinct data values y_1 < y_2 < ..., and
corresponding weights w_1, w_2, .... Let s_j denote the sum
of the first j weights, and let W denote the sum of all the
weights. For a probability point p, if pW falls strictly
between s_j and s_{j+1} then the estimated quantile is
y_{j+1}. If pW = s_j then the estimated quantile is (y_j +
y_{j+1})/2. If pW < p_1 then the estimated quantile is y_1.

The test rejects if the 2*alpha confidence interval for the difference
is contained in the ``(low, upp)`` interval.
This test works also for multi-endpoint comparisons: If d1 and d2
have the same number of columns, then each column of the data in d1 is
compared with the corresponding column in d2. This is the same as
comparing each of the corresponding columns separately. Currently no
multi-comparison correction is used. The raw p-values reported here can
be correction with the functions in ``multitest``.
