`infer_levene_test`

reports Levene's robust test statistic
for the equality of variances and the
two statistics proposed by Brown and Forsythe that replace the mean in
Levene's formula with alternative location estimators. The first alternative
replaces the mean with the median. The second alternative replaces
the mean with the 10
