Python | Pandas Series.valid()
  • Last Updated : 29 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.valid() function return the same Series object but without the null values.

Syntax: Series.valid(inplace=False, **kwargs)

Parameter :
inplace: boolean



Returns : Series

Example #1: Use Series.valid() function to remove the null values from the given Series object.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Creating the Series
sr = pd.Series(['New York', 'Chicago', None, 'Toronto', 'Lisbon', 'Rio', 'Chicago', 'Lisbon'])
  
# Print the series
print(sr)

Output :

Now we will use Series.valid() function to remove the null values from the given series object.




# return valid values
sr.valid()

Output :

As we can see in the output, the Series.valid() function has returned a Series object containing all the valid value of the original series object on which it was called.



Example #2: Use Series.valid() function to remove the null values from the given Series object.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Creating the Series
sr = pd.Series([100, 214, 325, 88, None, 325, None, 325, 100])
  
# Print the series
print(sr)

Output :

Now we will use Series.valid() function to remove the null values from the given series object.




# return valid values
sr.valid()

Output :

As we can see in the output, the Series.valid() function has returned a Series object containing all the valid value of the original series object on which it was called.
