- [Instructor] The missing data file from your exercise…file folder is pre-populated with import statements…for pandas and numpy, a numpy data set,…a date time index, and two sample data frames.…It also initializes a variable name starting date…with the value the first of July, 2016.…The purpose of this video is to explain…how to manage missing data in series and in data frames.…Missing data is a frequent occurrence…in real world data science.…
For example, people may not answer all the questions…within a survey or a data set may be constructed…from multiple sources, not all of which contain…identical time and decease or identical data types.…Begin by placing your cursor in the import cell…and press shift enter.…This creates name spaces for pandas and numpy,…initializes a variable called starting date,…and instantiates these variables and data sets.…According to the documentation,…a data frames re-index function…conforms a data frame to a new index…with optional filling logic, placing not available…or not a number in locations having no value…
