Mode represents the single most frequent value in a list, while multimode provides a list of all the values that occur with the highest frequency.
Let’s see how to calculate multimode in Python.
To calculate multimode we need to import a statistics module.
Fortunately, there is a dedicated function in statistics module for multimode calculation.
import statistics as s x = [1, 5, 7, 5, 43, 43, 8, 43, 6] multimode = s.multimode(x) print("Multimode equals: " + str(multimode))
What is the difference between mode and multimode?
The mode is the most frequent number in a list of numbers.
The multimode is a list of the most frequent numbers in a list of numbers.
For example, if a list of numbers is [1, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4], then the mode is 3 and the multimode is .
The difference between mode and multimode is that mode is a single number, while multimode is a list of numbers.
