How to Check Column Nulls and Replace: Pandas

Image
Here is a post that shows how to count Nulls and replace them with the value you want in the Pandas Dataframe. We have explained the process in two steps - Counting and Replacing the Null values. Count null values (column-wise) in Pandas ## count null values column-wise null_counts = df.isnull(). sum() print(null_counts) ``` Output: ``` Column1    1 Column2    1 Column3    5 dtype: int64 ``` In the above code, we first create a sample Pandas DataFrame `df` with some null values. Then, we use the `isnull()` function to create a DataFrame of the same shape as `df`, where each element is a boolean value indicating whether that element is null or not. Finally, we use the `sum()` function to count the number of null values in each column of the resulting DataFrame. The output shows the count of null values column-wise. to count null values column-wise: ``` df.isnull().sum() ``` ##Code snippet to count null values row-wise: ``` df.isnull().sum(axis=1) ``` In the above code, `df` is the Panda

Understand Data power why quality everyone wants

Information and data quality is new service work for data intense companies. I have seen not only in Analytics projects but in Mainframe projects, there is the Data Quality team. How incorrect data impact on us Information quality problems and their impact are all around us: A customer does not receive an order because of incorrect shipping information. Products are sold below cost because of wrong discount rates. A manufacturing line is stopped because parts were not ordered—the result of inaccurate inventory information.

What is information Information is not simply data, strings of numbers, lis
