pandas.plotting.bootstrap_plot

pandas.plotting.bootstrap_plot(series, fig=None, size=50, samples=500, **kwds)[source]

Bootstrap plot on mean, median and mid-range statistics.

The bootstrap plot is used to estimate the uncertainty of a statistic by relaying on random sampling with replacement [R33]. This function will generate bootstrapping plots for mean, median and mid-range statistics for the given number of samples of the given size.

[R33]“Bootstrapping (statistics)” in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bootstrapping_%28statistics%29
Parameters:

series : pandas.Series

Pandas Series from where to get the samplings for the bootstrapping.

fig : matplotlib.figure.Figure, default None

If given, it will use the fig reference for plotting instead of creating a new one with default parameters.

size : int, default 50

Number of data points to consider during each sampling. It must be greater or equal than the length of the series.

samples : int, default 500

Number of times the bootstrap procedure is performed.

**kwds :

Options to pass to matplotlib plotting method.

Returns:

fig : matplotlib.figure.Figure

Matplotlib figure
