Pandas: Display a summary of the basic information about a specified DataFrame and its data

Pandas: DataFrame Exercise-3 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to display a summary of the basic information about a specified DataFrame and its data.

Sample DataFrame:
exam_data = {'name': ['Anastasia', 'Dima', 'Katherine', 'James', 'Emily', 'Michael', 'Matthew', 'Laura', 'Kevin', 'Jonas'],
'score': [12.5, 9, 16.5, np.nan, 9, 20, 14.5, np.nan, 8, 19],
'attempts': [1, 3, 2, 3, 2, 3, 1, 1, 2, 1],
'qualify': ['yes', 'no', 'yes', 'no', 'no', 'yes', 'yes', 'no', 'no', 'yes']}
labels = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f', 'g', 'h', 'i', 'j']

Sample Solution :-

Python Code :

import pandas as pd
import numpy as np

exam_data  = {'name': ['Anastasia', 'Dima', 'Katherine', 'James', 'Emily', 'Michael', 'Matthew', 'Laura', 'Kevin', 'Jonas'],
        'score': [12.5, 9, 16.5, np.nan, 9, 20, 14.5, np.nan, 8, 19],
        'attempts': [1, 3, 2, 3, 2, 3, 1, 1, 2, 1],
        'qualify': ['yes', 'no', 'yes', 'no', 'no', 'yes', 'yes', 'no', 'no', 'yes']}
labels = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f', 'g', 'h', 'i', 'j']

df = pd.DataFrame(exam_data , index=labels)
print("Summary of the basic information about this DataFrame and its data:")
print(df.info())

Sample Output:

Summary of the basic information about this DataFrame and its data:

Index: 10 entries, a to j
Data columns (total 4 columns):
attempts    10 non-null int64
name        10 non-null object
qualify     10 non-null object
score       8 non-null float64
dtypes: float64(1), int64(1), object(2)
memory usage: 400.0+ bytes
None
