A collection of simple math functions. Documentation at http://datadesk.github.com/latimes-calculate/


  • Descriptive statistics like mean, median, percentile
  • Comparison statistics like percentage change, per-capita and rankings
  • Geospatial stats like mean center and standard deviation distance
  • A small dab of more complicated hoohah like Pearson’s R.
  • A grabbag of utilities for a diversity index, Benford’s Law, generating random points and other things


For most functions, nothing. GeoDjango is required for a small number of the geospatial functions, though the rest of the module will work if it is not installed.

Getting started

pip install latimes-calculate
