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.
Index.min() function returns the minimum value of the Index. The function works with both numerical as well as the string type objects. In case of string type object it returns the string which has smallest value in lexicographical order.
Parameters : Doesn’t take any parameter.
Returns : scalar: Minimum value.
Example #1: Use
Index.min() function to find the minimum element in the given Index.
Now we find the min value in the given Index.
As we can see in the output, the function has returned ‘Beagle’ which has the smallest lexicographical order among the values present in the Index.
Example #2: Use
Index.min() function to find the minimum value in the Index.
Now we will find the minimum value among the labels of the Index.
As we can see in the output, the function has returned 0 which is the smallest value among the labels of the Index.
