Charles Kelly explains how to use assignment statements for Pandas DataFrame and Series objects.
- [Instructor] The Assignment Statements file…from your exercises file folder…is pre-populated with import statements…for pandas, numpy, a numpy data set,…a datetime index, and two sample DataFrames.…It also initializes a variable named starting_date…to the first of July, 2016.…The purpose of this video is to explain…how to assign information to cells…within DataFrames.…This could be useful in at least two different contexts.…In the first context,…it's using Python and Pandas as a library.…
In this case, you wanna perform…ordinary assignment statements.…The second, and perhaps more interesting context,…is you receive a data set from some location.…As you look through the data set,…you realize that it's necessary to change…small amounts of the data within that data set.…In that case, you can use assignment statements…to change particular pieces of data.…You can do this either interactively…in a Jupyter notebook,…or you could do it using ordinary Python code.…
Begin by placing the cursor in the import cell.…Press Shift + Enter.…
