Python | Pandas Series.str.encode()

Series.str can be used to access the values of the series as strings and apply several methods to it. Pandas Series.str.encode() function is used to encode character string in the Series/Index using indicated encoding. Equivalent to str.encode().

Syntax: Series.str.encode(encoding, errors=’strict’)

Parameter :
encoding : str
errors : str, optional



Returns : encoded : Series/Index of objects

Example #1: Use Series.str.encode() function to encode the character strings present in the underlying data of the given series object. Use ‘raw_unicode_escape’ for encoding.

# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Creating the Series
sr = pd.Series(['New_York', 'Lisbon', 'Tokyo', 'Paris', 'Munich'])
  
# Creating the index
idx = ['City 1', 'City 2', 'City 3', 'City 4', 'City 5']
  
# set the index
sr.index = idx
  
# Print the series
print(sr)
