Python | Pandas Index.isna()

  • Last Updated : 17 Dec, 2018

Python is a great language for doing data analysis, primarily because of the fantastic ecosystem of data-centric python packages. Pandas is one of those packages and makes importing and analyzing data much easier.

Pandas Index.isna() function detect missing values. It return a boolean same-sized object indicating if the values are NA. NA values, such as None, numpy.NaN or pd.NaT, get mapped to True values. Everything else get mapped to False values. Characters such as empty strings ‘’ or numpy.inf are not considered NA values (unless you set pandas.options.mode.use_inf_as_na = True).

Syntax: Index.isna()



Parameters : Doesn’t take any parameter.

Returns : A boolean array of whether my values are NA

Example #1: Use Index.isna() function to check if any of the value in the Index is a NaN value.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Creating the Index
idx = pd.Index(['Labrador', None, 'Beagle', 'Mastiff'
                   'Lhasa', None, 'Husky', 'Beagle'])
  
# Print the Index
idx

Output :

Now we check for the missing values in the Index.




# checks for missing values.
idx.isna()

Output :

The function returned an array object having the same size as that of the index. True value means the index label was missing and False value means the index label was present.
 
Example #2: Use Index.isna() function to check if the missing Datetime Indexes are considered NaN values or not.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Creating the Datetime Index
idx = pd.DatetimeIndex([pd.Timestamp('2015-02-11'), 
                   None, pd.Timestamp(''), pd.NaT])
  
# Print the Datetime Index
idx

Output :

Now we will check if the labels in the Datetime Index are present or missing.




# test whether the passed Datetime 
# Index labels are missing or not.
idx.isna()

Output :

As we can see in the output, the function has returned an array object having the same size as that of the Datetime Index. True value means the index label are missing and False value means the index label are not missing.
