Delete a column from a Pandas DataFrame
Deletion is one of the primary operations when it comes to data analysis. Very often we see that a particular attribute in the data frame is not at all useful for us while working on a specific analysis, rather having it may lead to problems and unnecessary change in the prediction. For example, if we want to analyze the students’ BMI of a particular school, then there is no need to have the religion column/attribute for the students, so we prefer to delete the column. Let us now see the syntax of deleting a column from a dataframe.
Let us now see few examples:
Note the column ‘Age” has been dropped.
Note that the unnecessary column, ‘Religion’ has been deleted successfully.
