Pandas Getting Started


Installation of Pandas

If you have Python and PIP already installed on a system, then installation of Pandas is very easy.

Install it using this command:

C:\Users\Your Name>pip install pandas

If this command fails, then use a python distribution that already has Pandas installed like, Anaconda, Spyder etc.


Import Pandas

Once Pandas is installed, import it in your applications by adding the import keyword:

import pandas

Now Pandas is imported and ready to use.

Example

import pandas

mydataset = {
  'cars': ["BMW", "Volvo", "Ford"],
  'passings': [3, 7, 2]
}

myvar = pandas.DataFrame(mydataset)

print(myvar)
