class statsmodels.regression.quantile_regression.QuantReg(endog, exog, **kwargs)[source]

Quantile Regression

Estimate a quantile regression model using iterative reweighted least squares.

Parameters
endogarray or dataframe

endogenous/response variable

exogarray or dataframe

exogenous/explanatory variable(s)

Notes

The Least Absolute Deviation (LAD) estimator is a special case where quantile is set to 0.5 (q argument of the fit method).

The asymptotic covariance matrix is estimated following the procedure in Greene (2008, p.407-408), using either the logistic or gaussian kernels (kernel argument of the fit method).
