Definition and Usage

The info() method prints information about the DataFrame.

The information contains the number of columns, column labels, column data types, memory usage, range index, and the number of cells in each column (non-null values).

Note: the info() method actually prints the info. You do not use the print() method to print the info.


Syntax

dataframe.info(verbose,buf,max_cols,memory_usage,show_counts,null_counts)

Parameters

The parameters are keyword arguments.

Parameter Value Description
verbose True|False Optional. Whether to print all the information or not
buf buffer Optional. Outputs to buffer instead of to the sys.stdout. Useful when writing to files
max_cols int Optional. Specifies the number of columns you want information from
memory_usage True|False|string Optional. Specifies whether to print the memory usage or not, or 'deep' to do a real calclulation of the memory usage (at a high computer resource cost) instead of an estimate based on dtypes and number of rows (lower cost).
show_counts True|False Optional. Specifies whether to print the non-null counts or not

Return Value

None. The info() method does not return any value, it prints the information.
