Python Question

If I wanted to perform something like Levene's test of equal variances via scipy stats, which produces two outputs (the test statistic and p-value) for all the data in a dictionary, how would I append the outputs for each test to two different lists? I tried the code below:

`test_stat[]`

p_value[]

for i in range(0, n_data):

for j in range(1, n_name):

test_stat[i], p_value[i] = scipy.stats.levene(data[i][name[j-1]],

data[i][name[j]],

center='median')

But this clearly isn't the way to go about it, as I keep getting an

`IndexError`

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Answer

Not everything needs to be in a single line... This should work fine:

```
test_stats = []
p_values = []
for i in range(0, n_data):
for j in range(1, n_name):
test_stat, p_value = scipy.stats.levene(data[i][name[j-1]],
data[i][name[j]],
center='median')
test_stats.append(test_stat)
p_values.append(p_value)
```

Though of course this will add `n_data * n_name`

rows.
