DataFrame.quantile(q=0.5, axis=0, method='default')

Approximate row-wise and precise column-wise quantiles of DataFrame

Parameters
qlist/array of floats, default 0.5 (50%)

Iterable of numbers ranging from 0 to 1 for the desired quantiles

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

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

method{‘default’, ‘tdigest’, ‘dask’}, optional

What method to use. By default will use dask’s internal custom algorithm ('dask'). If set to 'tdigest' will use tdigest for floats and ints and fallback to the 'dask' otherwise.
