Python | Pandas Series.isnull()

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.isnull() function detect missing values in the given series object. It return a boolean same-sized object indicating if the values are NA. Missing values gets mapped to True and non-missing value gets mapped to False.

import pandas as pd
  
# Creating the Series
sr = pd.Series([10, 25, 3, 25, 24, 6])
  
# Create the Index
index_ = ['Coca Cola', 'Sprite', 'Coke', 'Fanta', 'Dew', 'ThumbsUp']
  
# set the index
sr.index = index_
  
# Print the series
print(sr)
