Zipf test in Python

Hi,

I have hospital data for 5 groups of hospitals. Each
group of hospitals used a different tool to register
medical procedures. Since the medical procedures are
probably Zipf distributed, I want to formally test
whether the hospitals differ in terms of
procedure-ditribution. Is there a Python module that
can do that? All I could find was ZipfR, a package for
R.

Best wishes,
Albert-Jan

Cheers!
Albert-Jan
