statsmodels.robust.scale.Huber

class statsmodels.robust.scale.Huber(c=1.5, tol=1e-08, maxiter=30, norm=None)[source]

Huber’s proposal 2 for estimating location and scale jointly.

Parameters
cfloat, optional

Threshold used in threshold for chi=psi**2. Default value is 1.5.

tolfloat, optional

Tolerance for convergence. Default value is 1e-08.

maxiterint, optional0

Maximum number of iterations. Default value is 30.

normstatsmodels.robust.norms.RobustNorm, optional

A robust norm used in M estimator of location. If None, the location estimator defaults to a one-step fixed point version of the M-estimator using Huber’s T.

call

Return joint estimates of Huber’s scale and location.
