Python | Pandas Series.iat

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 series is a One-dimensional ndarray with axis labels. The labels need not be unique but must be a hashable type. The object supports both integer- and label-based indexing and provides a host of methods for performing operations involving the index.

Pandas Series.iat attribute access a single value for a row/column pair by integer position.

import pandas as pd
  
# Creating the Series
sr = pd.Series(['New York', 'Chicago', 'Toronto', 'Lisbon'])
  
# Creating the row axis labels
sr.index = ['City 1', 'City 2', 'City 3', 'City 4'
  
# Print the series
print(sr)
