Get n-largest values from a particular column in Pandas DataFrame
  • Last Updated : 18 Dec, 2018

Pandas DataFrame is two-dimensional size-mutable, potentially heterogeneous tabular data structure with labeled axes (rows and columns).

Let’s see how can we can get n-largest values from a particular column in Pandas DataFrame.

Observe this dataset first. We’ll use ‘Age’, ‘Weight’ and ‘Salary’ columns of this data in order to get n-largest values from a particular column in Pandas DataFrame.




# importing pandas module 
import pandas as pd 
    
# making data frame 
  
df.head(10)

Code #1: Getting 5 largest Age






# importing pandas module 
import pandas as pd 
    
# making data frame 
df = pd.read_csv("nba.csv"
  
# five largest values in column age
df.nlargest(5, ['Age'])

Output:

 

Code #2: Getting 10 maximum weights




# importing pandas module 
import pandas as pd 
    
# making data frame 
df = pd.read_csv("nba.csv"
  
# Ten largest values in column Weight
df.nlargest(10, ['Weight'])

Output:

 

Code #3: Getting 10 maximum salary




# importing pandas module 
import pandas as pd 
    
# making data frame 
df = pd.read_csv("nba.csv"
  
# five largest values in column Salary
df.nlargest(5, ['Salary'])

Output:
