Return values at the given quantile over requested axis.

param q
float or array-like, default 0.5 (50% quantile)

Value between 0 <= q <= 1, the quantile(s) to compute.

param axis
{0, 1, ‘index’, ‘columns’} (default 0)

Equals 0 or ‘index’ for row-wise, 1 or ‘columns’ for column-wise.

param numeric_only
bool, default True

If False, the quantile of datetime and timedelta data will be computed as well.

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

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.

New in version 0.18.0.


Series or DataFrame

If q is an array, a DataFrame will be returned where the index is q, the columns are the columns of self, and the values are the quantiles. If q is a float, a Series will be returned where the index is the columns of self and the values are the quantiles.
