Sorting Data in Python With Pandas (Summary)

You now know how to use two core methods of the pandas library: .sort_values() and .sort_index(). With this knowledge, you can perform basic data analysis with a DataFrame. While there are a lot of similarities between these two methods, seeing the difference between them makes it clear which one to use for different analytical tasks.

In this video course, you’ve learned how to:

  • Sort a pandas DataFrame by the values of one or more columns
  • Use the ascending parameter to change the sort order
  • Sort a DataFrame by its index using .sort_index()
  • Organize missing data while sorting values
  • Sort a DataFrame in-place using inplace set to True
