Introduction
In this article, we will discuss the following operations on the rows of a DataFrame:
sorting rows rearranging rows We first import the required libraries and modules.

Introduction
Boolean masking refers to selecting subsets of a DataFrame with the help of Boolean expressions. In particular, it can be applied to filtering the rows of a DataFrame based on certain specified Boolean expressions.
In DataFrames, however, we cannot use the Python logical operators and, or and not.

Introduction
In this section, we will discuss accessing the rows in a dataframe by both label (loc attribute) and position (iloc attribute).
We first import the required libraries and modules.
1import numpy as np 2import pandas as pd 3import random as rd The next step is to create a DataFrame from a dictionary of lists with the help of the random module.

We learned in the previous sections that a DataFrame behaves in many ways like a 2D NumPy array or a structured array, and in other ways like a Python dictionary of Series objects sharing the same index.

Introduction
A pandas DataFrame is a twodimensional, sizemutable, potentially heterogeneous tabular data. As mentioned, a DataFrame is analogous to the EXCEL spreadsheet with its rows and columns, while a Series is analogous to a single column of data.

Introduction
A pandas Series is a onedimensional array of indexed data. It is capable of holding data of any type (integer, string, float, python objects, etc.).
Syntax
A pandas Series can be created using the following constructor.
Syntax
The pandas.Series function.
1pandas.Series(data=None, index=None, dtype=None, copy=False) Parameter Required? Default Value Description data ✔️ Yes NA Arraylike, Iterable, dict, or scalar value.

Index as an Immutable Array
Index as an Ordered Set
Introduction
Both the Series and DataFrame objects contain an explicit index that alows us to reference the data. It can be thought of either as an immutable array or as an indexed set but with (possibly) repeated values. In fact, an index object is indexed and ordered but immutable.
We can create an index object explicitly using the constructor function pd.

The Series and DataFrame Objects
Introduction
In this course, we build on our knowledge of NumPy by looking in detail at the data structures provided by the Pandas library. Pandas is a newer package built on top of NumPy, and provides an efficient implementation of a DataFrame.
DataFrames are essentially multidimensional arrays with attached row and column labels, and often with heterogeneous types and/or missing data. As well as offering a convenient storage interface for labeled data, Pandas implements a number of powerful data operations familiar to users of both database frameworks and spreadsheet programs.
