 # sciPy function stats.variation () | python

` scipy.stats.variation (arr, axis = None) ` calculates the coefficient of variation. It is defined as the ratio of the standard deviation to the mean.

Parameters:
arr: [array_like] input array.
axis: [int or tuples of int] axis along which we want to calculate the coefficient of variation.
– & gt; axis = 0 coefficient of variation along the column.
– & gt; axis = 1 coefficient of variation working along the row.

Results: Coefficient of variation of the array with values ​​along specified axis.
