DataFrame.kurt(axis: Union[int, str, None] = None, numeric_only: bool = None) → Union[int, float, bool, str, bytes, decimal.Decimal,, datetime.datetime, None, Series]

Return unbiased kurtosis using Fisher’s definition of kurtosis (kurtosis of normal == 0.0). Normalized by N-1.

axis{index (0), columns (1)}

Axis for the function to be applied on.

numeric_onlybool, default None

Include only float, int, boolean columns. False is not supported. This parameter is mainly for pandas compatibility.

kurtscalar for a Series, and a Series for a DataFrame.


>>> df = ps.DataFrame({'a': [1, 2, 3, np.nan], 'b': [0.1, 0.2, 0.3, np.nan]},
...                   columns=['a', 'b'])

On a DataFrame:

>>> df.kurtosis()
a   -1.5
b   -1.5
dtype: float64

On a Series:

>>> df['a'].kurtosis()
