Change the order of index of a series in Pandas
  • Last Updated : 17 Aug, 2020

Suppose we want to change the order of the index of series, then we have to use the Series.reindex() Method of pandas module for performing this task.

Series, which is a 1-D labeled array capable of holding any data.

Syntax: pandas.Series(data, index, dtype, copy)
 

Parameters:

  • data takes ndarrys, list, constants.
  • index values.
  • dtypes for data types.
  • Copy data, default is False.

Series.reindex() Method is used for changing the data on the basis of indexes.

Syntax: Series.reindex(labels=None, index=None, columns=None, axis=None, method=None, copy=True, level=None, fill_value=nan, limit=None, tolerance=None)

Let’s create a series:

Python3




# import required library
import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
  
# create numpy array
data = np.array(["Android dev",
                 "content writing",
                 "competetive coding"])
#create a series
total_series = pd.Series(data,
                         index = [1, 2, 3])
  
# show the series
total_series

Output:

Series

Series

Example 1: 

Python3






# import required library
import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
  
# create numpy array
data = np.array(["Android dev",
                 "content writing",
                 "competetive coding"])
# create a series
total_series = pd.Series(data,
                         index = [1, 2, 3])
# reindexing of series
total_series = total_series.reindex(index 
                                    = [3, 2, 1])
# show the series
total_series

Output: 

Reindexing on series

Example 2: 

Python3




# import required library
import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
  
# create numpy array
data = np.array(["Android dev",
                 "content writing",
                 "competetive coding"])
# create a series
total_series = pd.Series(data,
                         index = [1, 2, 3])
# reindexing of series
total_series = total_series.reindex([2, 3, 1])
  
# show the series
total_series

Output:

Reindexing on series-2
