vDataFrame.corr

In [ ]:
vDataFrame.corr(columns: list = [],
                method: str = "pearson",
                round_nb: int = 3, 
                focus: str = "",
                show: bool = True,
                ax=None,
                **style_kwds,)

Computes the correlation matrix of the vDataFrame.

Parameters

Name Type Optional Description
columns
list
List of the vcolumns names. If empty, all the numerical vcolumns will be used.
method
str
Method to use to compute the correlation.
  • pearson : Pearson correlation coefficient (linear).
  • spearmann : Spearmann's rank correlation coefficient (monotonic - rank based).
  • kendall : Kendall rank correlation coefficient (similar trends). The method will compute the Tau-B coefficient.
    ⚠ Warning:This method is computationally expensive; it uses a CROSS JOIN during computation, the complexity of which is O(n * n), where n is the total count of the vDataFrame.
  • cramer : Cramer's V (correlation between categories).
  • biserial : Point-biserial (correlation between binaries and a numericals).
round_nb
int
Rounds the coefficient using the input number of digits.
focus
bool
Focuses computation on only one vcolumn.
show
bool
If true, the correlation matrix will be drawn using Matplotlib.
ax
Matplotlib axes object
The axes to plot on.
**style_kwds
any
Any optional parameter to pass to the Matplotlib functions.

Returns

tablesample : An object containing the result. For more information, see utilities.tablesample.
