R Question

R summary() equivalent in numpy

Is there an equivalent of

R
's
summary()
function in
numpy
?

numpy
has std, mean, average functions separately, but does it have a function that sums up everything, like
summary
does in
R
?

If found this question which relates to
pandas
and this article with R-to-numpy equivalents, but it doesn't have what I seek for.

Answer

No. You'll need to use pandas.

R is for language for statistics, so many of the basic functionality you need, like summary() and lm(), are loaded when you boot it up. Python has many uses, so you need to install and import the appropriate statistical packages. numpy isn't a statistics package - it's for numerical computation more generally, so you need to use packages like pandas, scipy and statsmodels to allow Python to do what R can do out of the box.
