Pandas: Rename columns of a given DataFrame

Pandas: DataFrame Exercise-23 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to rename columns of a given DataFrame.

Sample data:
Original DataFrame
col1 col2 col3
0 1 4 7
1 2 5 8
2 3 6 9
New DataFrame after renaming columns:
Column1 Column2 Column3
0 1 4 7
1 2 5 8
2 3 6 9

Sample Solution :

Python Code :

import pandas as pd
d = {'col1': [1, 2, 3], 'col2': [4, 5, 6], 'col3': [7, 8, 9]}
df = pd.DataFrame(data=d)
print("Original DataFrame")
print(df)
df.columns = ['Column1', 'Column2', 'Column3']
df = df.rename(columns={'col1': 'Column1', 'col2': 'Column2', 'col3': 'Column3'})
print("New DataFrame after renaming columns:")
print(df)

Sample Output:

Original DataFrame
   col1  col2  col3
0     1     4     7
1     2     5     8
2     3     6     9
New DataFrame after renaming columns:
   Column1  Column2  Column3
0        1        4        7
1        2        5        8
2        3        6        9

Python: Tips of the Day

Creates a dictionary with the same keys as the provided dictionary and values generated by running the provided function for each value

Example:

def tips_map_values(obj, fn):
  ret = {}
  for key in obj.keys():
    ret[key] = fn(obj[key])
  return ret
users = {
  'Owen': { 'user': 'Owen', 'age': 29 },
  'Eddie': { 'user': 'Eddie', 'age': 15 }
}

print(tips_map_values(users, lambda u : u['age'])) # {'Owen': 29, 'Eddie': 15}

Output:

{'Owen': 29, 'Eddie': 15}
