.RobustScaler¶
- class sklearn.preprocessing.RobustScaler(*, with_centering=True, with_scaling=True, quantile_range=(25.0, 75.0), copy=True, unit_variance=False)[source]¶
Scale features using statistics that are robust to outliers.
This Scaler removes the median and scales the data according to the quantile range (defaults to IQR: Interquartile Range). The IQR is the range between the 1st quartile (25th quantile) and the 3rd quartile (75th quantile).
Centering and scaling happen independently on each feature by computing the relevant statistics on the samples in the training set. Median and interquartile range are then stored to be used on later data using the
transform
method.Standardization of a dataset is a common preprocessing for many machine learning estimators. Typically this is done by removing the mean and scaling to unit variance. However, outliers can often influence the sample mean / variance in a negative way. In such cases, using the median and the interquartile range often give better results. For an example visualization and comparison to other scalers, refer to Compare RobustScaler with other scalers.
New in version 0.17.

- Parameters:
- with_centeringbool, default=True
If
True
, center the data before scaling. This will causetransform
to raise an exception when attempted on sparse matrices, because centering them entails building a dense matrix which in common use cases is likely to be too large to fit in memory.- with_scalingbool, default=True
If
True
, scale the data to interquartile range.- quantile_rangetuple (q_min, q_max), 0.0 < q_min < q_max < 100.0, default=(25.0, 75.0)
Quantile range used to calculate
scale_
. By default this is equal to the IQR, i.e.,q_min
is the first quantile andq_max
is the third quantile.New in version 0.18.
- copybool, default=True
If
False
, try to avoid a copy and do inplace scaling instead. This is not guaranteed to always work inplace; e.g. if the data is not a NumPy array or scipy.sparse CSR matrix, a copy may still be returned.- unit_variancebool, default=False
If
True
, scale data so that normally distributed features have a variance of 1. In general, if the difference between the x-values ofq_max
andq_min
for a standard normal distribution is greater than 1, the dataset will be scaled down. If less than 1, the dataset will be scaled up.New in version 0.24.
- Attributes:
- center_array of floats
The median value for each feature in the training set.
- scale_array of floats
The (scaled) interquartile range for each feature in the training set.
New in version 0.17: scale_ attribute.
- n_features_in_int
Number of features seen during fit.
New in version 0.24.
- feature_names_in_ndarray of shape (
n_features_in_
,) Names of features seen during fit. Defined only when
X
has feature names that are all strings.New in version 1.0.
