Pandas: Change the name of an aggregated metric

Pandas Grouping and Aggregating: Split-Apply-Combine Exercise-25 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to split a dataset, group by one column and get mean, min, and max values by group, also change the column name of the aggregated metric. Using the following dataset find the mean, min, and max values of purchase amount (purch_amt) group by customer id (customer_id).

Test Data:

   school class            name date_Of_Birth   age  height   weight  address
S1   s001     V  Alberto Franco     15/05/2002   12    173      35  street1
S2   s002     V    Gino Mcneill     17/05/2002   12    192      32  street2
S3   s003    VI     Ryan Parkes     16/02/1999   13    186      33  street3
S4   s001    VI    Eesha Hinton     25/09/1998   13    167      30  street1
S5   s002     V    Gino Mcneill     11/05/2002   14    151      31  street2
S6   s004    VI    David Parkes     15/09/1997   12    159      32  street4

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

import pandas as pd
pd.set_option('display.max_rows', None)
#pd.set_option('display.max_columns', None)
df = pd.DataFrame({
    'school_code': ['s001','s002','s003','s001','s002','s004'],
    'class': ['V', 'V', 'VI', 'VI', 'V', 'VI'],
    'name': ['Alberto Franco','Gino Mcneill','Ryan Parkes', 'Eesha Hinton', 'Gino Mcneill', 'David Parkes'],
    'date_Of_Birth ': ['15/05/2002','17/05/2002','16/02/1999','25/09/1998','11/05/2002','15/09/1997'],
    'age': [12, 12, 13, 13, 14, 12],
    'height': [173, 192, 186, 167, 151, 159],
    'weight': [35, 32, 33, 30, 31, 32],
    'address': ['street1', 'street2', 'street3', 'street1', 'street2', 'street4']},
    index=['S1', 'S2', 'S3', 'S4', 'S5', 'S6'])
print("Original DataFrame:")
print(df)
print('\nChange the name of an aggregated metric:')
grouped_single = df.groupby('school_code').agg({'age': [("mean_age","mean"), ("min_age", "min"), ("max_age","max")]})
print(grouped_single)

Sample Output:

Original DataFrame:
   school_code class            name   ...    height  weight  address
S1        s001     V  Alberto Franco   ...       173      35  street1
S2        s002     V    Gino Mcneill   ...       192      32  street2
S3        s003    VI     Ryan Parkes   ...       186      33  street3
S4        s001    VI    Eesha Hinton   ...       167      30  street1
S5        s002     V    Gino Mcneill   ...       151      31  street2
S6        s004    VI    David Parkes   ...       159      32  street4

[6 rows x 8 columns]

Change the name of an aggregated metric:
                 age                
            mean_age min_age max_age
school_code                         
s001            12.5      12      13
s002            13.0      12      14
s003            13.0      13      13
s004            12.0      12      12

Negative Indexing:

In Python you can use negative indexing. While positive index starts with 0, negative index starts with -1.

name="Welcome"
print(name[0])
print(name[-1])
print(name[0:3])
print(name[-1:-4:-1])

Output:
