statsmodels.stats.multivariate.test_cov(cov, nobs, cov_null)[source]

One sample hypothesis test for covariance equal to null covariance

The Null hypothesis is that cov = cov_null, against the alternative that it is not equal to cov_null

Parameters:
covarray_like

Covariance matrix of the data, estimated with denominator (N - 1), i.e. ddof=1.

nobsint

number of observations used in the estimation of the covariance

cov_nullnd_array

covariance under the null hypothesis

Returns:
resinstance of HolderTuple

results with statistic, pvalue and other attributes like df
