pandas.core.window.Expanding.aggregate

Expanding.aggregate(self, arg, *args, **kwargs)[source]

Aggregate using one or more operations over the specified axis.

Parameters
funcfunction, str, list or dict

Function to use for aggregating the data. If a function, must either work when passed a Series/Dataframe or when passed to Series/Dataframe.apply.

Accepted combinations are:

  • function

  • string function name

  • list of functions and/or function names, e.g. [np.sum, 'mean']

  • dict of axis labels -> functions, function names or list of such.

*args

Positional arguments to pass to func.

**kwargs

Keyword arguments to pass to func.

Returns
scalar, Series or DataFrame

The return can be:

  • scalar : when Series.agg is called with single function

  • Series : when DataFrame.agg is called with a single function

  • DataFrame : when DataFrame.agg is called with several functions

Return scalar, Series or DataFrame.

Notes

agg is an alias for aggregate. Use the alias.

A passed user-defined-function will be passed a Series for evaluation.
