Geometric Mean in Python (Example)
The post consists of this information:
Let’s do this!
Example Data & Add-On Libraries
I’ll use the data below as a basis for this Python tutorial:
my_list = [4, 3, 8, 7, 8, 4, 4, 1, 5] # Create example list print(my_list) # Print example list # [4, 3, 8, 7, 8, 4, 4, 1, 5]
The previous output of the Python console shows that our example data is a list object containing nine integers.
Example: Get Geometric Mean Using gmean() Function of SciPy Library
In this example, I’ll demonstrate how to calculate the geometric mean of a list in Python.
For this task, we first have to import the gmean function of the SciPy library:
from scipy.stats import gmean # Import gmean function of SciPy library
In the next step, we can apply the gmean function to our example list to get the geometric mean:
print(gmean(my_list)) # Apply gmean function # 4.226198741306655
As you can see, the geometric mean of the numbers in our list is 4.22.
