Further Reshaping Capabilities

Discover further reshaping and manipulation capabilities of pandas.


While we've covered the essential pandas functions for reshaping and manipulating data, there are several others that also deserve a mention. These methods may be used less often, but they are still highly useful for our data preparation efforts.

The transpose() method

Transposing a DataFrame means flipping (or rotating) the rows and columns so that the rows become columns and the columns become rows. This operation can be performed with the transpose() or T method.

Note: Both transpose() and T return the same result. While transpose() is more verbose and easy to understand, data practitioners often use T because of its brevity.
