How to Select single column of a Pandas Dataframe?
In this article, we will discuss how to select a single column in a data frame. Now let us try to implement this using Python.
First, let’s create a dataframe
Method 1: Using Dot(dataframe.columnname) returns the complete selected column
Method 2: Using dataframe[columnname] method:
There are some problems that may occur with using dataframe.dot are as follows:
- Through dot method, we cannot Select column names with spaces.
- Ambiguity may occur when we Select column names that have the same name as methods for example max method of dataframe.
- We cannot Select multiple columns using dot method.
- We cannot Set new columns using dot method.
Because of the above reason dataframe[columnname] method is used widely.
Another Example now if we want to select the column Age.
