Chapter: Intro to Pandas
Lecture: Concept: Understanding your dataframe
0:00 After creating your data frame in pandas,
0:02 you want to use several commands to understand how it's structured.
0:05 If we have a data frame called DF and want to see the top of bottom
0:07 rows, df.head() and df.tail() will show the bottom and top rows.
0:11 The info function will give more details on the columns,
0:14 including memory usage and data types.
0:17 Understanding the number of rows and columns is important as well,
0:20 so the DF shape function will tell us that,
0:22 and finally, calling describe on a data frame will give us a numerical summary
0:27 of the values in that data frame.
