Initializes statistics options.
generators: An optional list of statistics generators. A statistics generator must extend either CombinerStatsGenerator or TransformStatsGenerator.
feature_whitelist: An optional list of names of the features to calculate statistics for.
schema: An optional tensorflow_metadata Schema proto. Currently we use the schema to infer categorical and bytes features.
weight_feature: An optional feature name whose numeric value represents the weight of an example.
slice_functions: An optional list of functions that generate slice keys for each example. Each slice function should take an example dict as input and return a list of zero or more slice keys.
sample_count: An optional number of examples to include in the sample. If specified, statistics is computed over the sample. Only one of sample_count or sample_rate can be specified. Note that since TFDV batches input examples, the sample count is only a desired count and we may include more examples in certain cases.
sample_rate: An optional sampling rate. If specified, statistics is computed over the sample. Only one of sample_count or sample_rate can be specified.
num_top_values: An optional number of most frequent feature values to keep for string features.
frequency_threshold: An optional minimum number of examples the most frequent values must be present in.
weighted_frequency_threshold: An optional minimum weighted number of examples the most frequent weighted values must be present in. This option is only relevant when a weight_feature is specified.
num_rank_histogram_buckets: An optional number of buckets in the rank histogram for string features.
num_values_histogram_buckets: An optional number of buckets in a quantiles histogram for the number of values per Feature, which is stored in CommonStatistics.num_values_histogram.
num_histogram_buckets: An optional number of buckets in a standard NumericStatistics.histogram with equal-width buckets.
num_quantiles_histogram_buckets: An optional number of buckets in a quantiles NumericStatistics.histogram.
epsilon: An optional error tolerance for the computation of quantiles, typically a small fraction close to zero (e.g. 0.01). Higher values of epsilon increase the quantile approximation, and hence result in more unequal buckets, but could improve performance, and resource consumption.
infer_type_from_schema: A boolean to indicate whether the feature types should be inferred from the schema. If set to True, an input schema must be provided. This flag is used only when generating statistics on CSV data.
desired_batch_size: An optional number of examples to include in each batch that is passed to the statistics generators.
enable_semantic_domain_stats: If True statistics for semantic domains are generated (e.g: image, text domains).
semantic_domain_stats_sample_rate: An optional sampling rate for semantic domain statistics. If specified, semantic domain statistics is computed over a sample.
