Most Asked Pandas Questions

30. What is Cumsum() Function in Pandas and why do we use it ?

The Cumsum() Function is used to get Cumulative Sum over the dataframe.

Let’s understand with a practical example.

Microsoft Word – Final_Pandas_Neha.docx

import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
s = pd.Series([3, np.nan, 4, -5, 0])

31 What is Pandas ml?
Pandas_ml is a package which integrates pandas , scikit-learn , xgboost into one package for easy handling of data and creation of machine learning models.


pip install pandas-ml

32. What is Sample Method in Pandas?

Sample Method is very useful when we want to select a random sample from a distribution. Sample Method allows you to Select random number of Samples from the Series or DataFrame.

Let‘s suppose this is our Dataframe.

import numpy as np

import pandas as pd

value_1 = np.random.randint(10, size=10)

value_2 = np.random.randint(10, size=10)

years = np.arange(2010,2020)

groups = [‘A’,’G’,’B’,’K’,’B’,’B’,’C’,’A’,’C’,’C’]

df = pd.DataFrame({‘group’:groups, ‘year’:years, ‘value_1’:value_1, ‘value_2’:value_2})


sample1 = df.sample(n=3) sample1

33. What is loc and iloc function in Pandas?
loc : loc is label-based , which means that we have to specify the name of rows and columns that we want to filter out.

iloc : iloc is interger, index-based, we have to specify the rows and columns by their interger index.

Let suppose this is our dataframe:

import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
# create a sample dataframe
data = pd.DataFrame({

‘age’ : [ 10, 22, 13, 21, 12, 11, 17],
‘section’ : [ ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘B’, ‘B’, ‘A’, ‘A’],
‘city’ : [ ‘Gurgaon’, ‘Delhi’, ‘Mumbai’, ‘Delhi’, ‘Mumbai’, ‘Delhi’, ‘Mumbai’], ‘gender’ : [ ‘M’, ‘F’, ‘F’, ‘M’, ‘M’, ‘M’, ‘F’]

# view the data data

iloc Function:

# Select rows with particular indices and particular columns

loc Function :

# Select using loc Function
data.loc[(data.age >= 12) & (data.gender == ‘M’)]

34. What is Memory_usage function in Pandas ?
Memory_usage() returns how much memory each column uses in bytes. It is very useful when we are working with large dataframes.


35. What is Group by function in Pandas and write a pandas program to split the dataframe into groups based on college code.

print(‘\nSplit the said data on school_code wise:’)
result = data.groupby([‘school_code’])

for name,group in result:

print(name) print(group) print(‘\n’)

36. Write a Pandas program to split the following dataframe into group based on school_code and get min , max and mean value of age for each school ?

print(‘\nMean , min, and max value of age for each value of the school:’)
group = data.groupby(‘school_code’).agg({‘age’: [‘mean’, ‘min’, ‘max’]})

37. Write a Pandas Program to split the dataframe into group based on school_code and class.

Code :
for name,group in result:
print(‘\n Group’)

38. Write a Pandas program to split a dataframe into group based on school_code and call a specific group with the name.
There is a function called get_group() in the pandas with the help of which we can call any particular group from the dataframe.
Code :

print(‘\nSplit the said data on school_code wise:’) grouped = data.groupby([‘school_code’]) print(“Call school code ‘s001’:”) print(grouped.get_group(‘s001’))

print(“\nCall school code ‘s004’:”) print(grouped.get_group(‘s004’))

39. Write a Pandas program to split the dataframe into groups based on all columns and calculate value_counts of each subject.

Code :

import pandas as pd
df = pd.DataFrame( {‘id’ : [1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 1, 2],

‘type’ : [10, 15, 11, 20, 21, 12, 14],

‘book’ : [‘Math’,’English’,’Physics’,’Math’,’English’,’Physics’,’English’]})

print(“Original DataFrame:”)
result = df.groupby([‘id’, ‘type’, ‘book’]).size().unstack(fill_value=0)

40. How to concatenate two or more than two dataframes. Explain with the help of Example.

We can concatenate two dataframes by using concat () function. Which is a inbuilt function of pandas library.

Let’s suppose we have 2 dataframes:

Microsoft Word – Final_Pandas_Neha.docx

# Creating data frames

df1 = pd.DataFrame({‘A’: [‘A0’, ‘A1’, ‘A2’, ‘A3’], ‘B’: [‘B0’, ‘B1’, ‘B2’, ‘B3’],

‘C’: [‘C0’, ‘C1’, ‘C2’, ‘C3’], ‘D’: [‘D0’, ‘D1’, ‘D2’, ‘D3’]}, index=[0, 1, 2, 3])

df2 = pd.DataFrame({‘AD’: [‘A4’, ‘A5’, ‘A6’, ‘A7’], ‘B’: [‘B4’, ‘B5’, ‘B6’, ‘B7’],

‘C’: [‘C4’, ‘C5’, ‘C6’, ‘C7’], ‘D’: [‘D4’, ‘D5’, ‘D6’, ‘D7’]},

index=[0, 1, 2, 3])

# Concatenation

df_cat1 = pd.concat([df1,df2], axis=1)
print(“\nAfter concatenation along row\n”) df_cat1
