- scipy.stats.kurtosistest(a, axis=0)[source]¶
Tests whether a dataset has normal kurtosis
This function tests the null hypothesis that the kurtosis of the population from which the sample was drawn is that of the normal distribution: kurtosis = 3(n-1)/(n+1).
a : array
array of the sample data
axis : int or None, optional
Axis along which to compute test. Default is 0. If None, compute over the whole array a.
statistic : float
The computed z-score for this test.
pvalue : float
The 2-sided p-value for the hypothesis test
Valid only for n>20. The Z-score is set to 0 for bad entries.
