# Pandas: Split a given dataset, group by two columns and convert other columns of the dataframe into a dictionary with column header as key

## Pandas Grouping and Aggregating: Split-Apply-Combine Exercise-26 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to split a given dataset, group by two columns and convert other columns of the dataframe into a dictionary with column header as key.

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)
dict_data_list = list()

for gg, dd in df.groupby(['school_code','class']):
group = dict(zip(['school_code','class'], gg))
ocolumns_list = list()
for _, data in dd.iterrows():
data = data.drop(labels=['school_code','class'])
ocolumns_list.append(data.to_dict())
group['other_columns'] = ocolumns_list
dict_data_list.append(group)

print(dict_data_list)
``````

Sample Output:

```Original DataFrame:
school_code class            name date_Of_Birth   age  height  weight  \
S1        s001     V  Alberto Franco     15/05/2002   12     173      35
