How to obtain values under All when the margins of pivot_table is set to True?
#1
Hi, anybody knows how the values under All (both row and column) were calculated. I heard that by setting margins equals to True, the values under All are the group statistics. I added the values in the first column and divided by 6, I got 2.4975635 but privot_table gave 2.668874. Similarly, I calculated the average on the first row (2+2.222222)/2 = 2.111111 but pivot_table gave 2.166667.

In [66]: tips.pivot_table(['tip_pct', 'size'], index=['time', 'day'], columns='s
    ...: moker', margins=True)                                                  
Out[66]: 
                 size                       tip_pct                    
smoker             No       Yes       All        No       Yes       All
