## Distributional Statistics

**Table 6.3. Distributional Statistics**

Function | Description | Input | Returns |
---|---|---|---|

STATS_ADD | Adds one or more input values to those that are used to calculate the summary statistics. |
stats - The Stellar statistics object. If null, then a new one is initialized. value+ - One or more numbers to add
| A Stellar statistics object |

STATS_BIN | Computes the bin that the value is in based on the statistical distribution. |
stats - The Stellar statistics object value - The value to bin bounds? - A list of percentile bin bounds (excluding min and max) or a string representing a known and common set of bins. For convenience, we have provided QUARTILE, QUINTILE, and DECILE which you can pass in as a string arg. If this argument is omitted, then we assume a Quartile bin split.
| Which bin N the value falls in such that bound(N-1) < value <= bound(N). No min and max bounds are provided, so values smaller than the 0'th bound go in the 0'th bin, and values greater than the last bound go in the M'th bin. |

STATS_COUNT | Calculates the count of the values accumulated (or in the window if a window is used). |
stats - The Stellar statistics object
| The count of the values in the window or NaN if the statistics object is null |

STATS_GEOMETRIC_MEAN | Calculates the geometric mean of the accumulated values (or in the window if a window is used). See Descriptive_statistics |
stats - The Stellar statistics object
| The geometric mean of the values in the window or NaN if the statistics object is null. |

STATS_INIT | Initializes a statistics object |
window size - The number of input data values to maintain in a rolling window in memory. If window_size is equal to 0, then no rolling window is maintained. Using no rolling window is less memory intensive, but cannot calculate certain statistics like percentiles and kurtosis.
| A Stellar statistics object |

STATS_KURTOSIS | Calculates the kurtosis of the accumulated values (or in the window if a window is used). See Descriptive_statistics |
stats - The Stellar statistics object
| The kurtosis of the values in the window or NaN if the statistics object is null |

STATS_MAX | Calculates the maximum of the accumulated values (or in the window if a window is used). |
stats - The Stellar statistics object
| The maximum of the accumulated values in the window or NaN if the statistics object is null. |

STATS_MEAN | Calculates the mean of the accumulated values (or in the window if a window is used). |
stats - The Stellar statistics object
| The mean of the values in the window or NaN if the statistics object is null. |

STATS_MERGE | Merges statistics objects |
statistics -A list of statistics objects
| A Stellar statistics object |

STATS_MIN | Calculates the minimum of the accumulated values (or in the window if a window is used). |
stats - The Stellar statistics object
| The minimum of the accumulated values in the window or NaN if the statistics object is null. |

STATS_PERCENTILE | Computes the p'th percentile of the accumulated values (or in the window if a window is used). |
stats - The Stellar statistics object p - A double where 0 <= p < 1 representing the percentile
| The p'th percentile of the data or NaN if the statistics object is null |

STATS_POPULATION_VARIANCE | Calculates the population variance of the accumulated values (or in the window if a window is used). See Descriptive_statistics |
stats - The Stellar statistics object
| The population variance of the values in the window or NaN if the statistics object is null. |

STATS_QUADRATIC_MEAN | Calculates the quadratic mean of the accumulated values (or in the window if a window is used). See Descriptive_statistics |
stats - The Stellar statistics object
| The quadratic mean of the values in the window or NaN if the statistics object is null. |

STATS_SD | Calculates the standard deviation of the accumulated values (or in the window if a window is used). See Descriptive_statistics |
stats - The Stellar statistics object
| The standard deviation of the values in the window or NaN if the statistics object is null. |

STATS_SKEWNESS | Calculates the skewness of the accumulated values (or in the window if a window is used). See Descriptive_statistics |
stats - The Stellar statistics object
| The skewness of the values in the window or NaN if the statistics object is null. |

STATS_SUM | Calculates the sum of the accumulated values (or in the window if a window is used). |
stats - The Stellar statistics object
| The sum of the values in the window or NaN if the statistics object is null. |

STATS_SUM_LOGS | Calculates the sum of the (natural) log of the accumulated values (or in the window if a window is used). See Descriptive_statistics |
stats - The Stellar statistics object
| The sum of the (natural) log of the values in the window or NaN if the statistics object is null. |

STATS_SUM_SQUARES | Calculates the sum of the squares of the accumulated values (or in the window if a window is used). |
stats - The Stellar statistics object
| The sum of the squares of the values in the window or NaN if the statistics object is null. |

STATS_VARIANCE | Calculates the variance of the accumulated values (or in the window if a window is used). See Descriptive_statistics |
stats - The Stellar statistics object
| The variance of the values in the window or NaN if the statistics object is null. |
