Python | Pandas Series.size

  • Last Updated : 28 Jan, 2019

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.size attribute returns the number of elements in the underlying data for the given series objects.

Syntax:Series.size

Parameter : None



Returns : size

Example #1: Use Series.size attribute to find the number of elements in the underlying data of the given series object.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Creating the Series
sr = pd.Series(['New York', 'Chicago', 'Toronto', 'Lisbon', 'Rio'])
  
# Creating the row axis labels
sr.index = ['City 1', 'City 2', 'City 3', 'City 4', 'City 5'
  
# Print the series
print(sr)

Output :

Now we will use Series.size attribute to find the number of elements in the underlying data of the given Series object.




# return the number of elements
sr.size

Output :

As we can see in the output, the Series.size attribute has returned 5 indicating that there are 5 elements in the given series object.
 
Example #2 : Use Series.size attribute to find the number of elements in the underlying data of the given series object.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Creating the Series
sr = pd.Series(['1/1/2018', '2/1/2018', '3/1/2018', '4/1/2018'])
  
# Creating the row axis labels
sr.index = ['Day 1', 'Day 2', 'Day 3', 'Day 4']
  
# Print the series
print(sr)

Output :

Now we will use Series.size attribute to find the number of elements in the underlying data of the given Series object.




# return the number of elements
sr.size

Output :

As we can see in the output, the Series.size attribute has returned 4 indicating that there are 4 elements in the given series object.
