How do I select a pandas Series from a DataFrame?


DataFrames and Series are the two main object types in pandas for data storage: a DataFrame is like a table, and each column of the table is called a Series. You will often select a Series in order to analyze or manipulate it. In this video, I'll show you how to select a Series using "bracket notation" and "dot notation", and will discuss the limitations of dot notation. I'll also demonstrate how to create a new Series in a DataFrame.

This is video 3 of 30 in the series, Easier data analysis in Python with pandas. The notebook and datasets shown in the video are available on GitHub.
