pandas.core.window.Expanding.quantile

Expanding.quantile(self, quantile, interpolation='linear', **kwargs)[source]

Calculate the expanding quantile.

Parameters
quantilefloat

Quantile to compute. 0 <= quantile <= 1.

interpolation{‘linear’, ‘lower’, ‘higher’, ‘midpoint’, ‘nearest’}

New in version 0.23.0.

This optional parameter specifies the interpolation method to use, when the desired quantile lies between two data points i and j:

  • linear: i + (j - i) * fraction, where fraction is the fractional part of the index surrounded by i and j.

  • lower: i.

  • higher: j.

  • nearest: i or j whichever is nearest.

  • midpoint: (i + j) / 2.

**kwargs:

For compatibility with other expanding methods. Has no effect on the result.

Returns
Series or DataFrame

Returned object type is determined by the caller of the expanding calculation.
