How to iterate over a pandas series?

This recipe helps you iterate over a pandas series


Recipe Objective

While working with dataframes, many a times we encounter a need to go through each and every items, one-by-one i.e. iterate over the items. Simplest way is to use a for loop for the purpose.

So this recipe is a short example on how to iterate over a Pandas Series. Let's get started.

Step 1 - Import the library

import pandas as pd

Let's pause and look at these imports. Pandas is generally used for data manipulation and analysis.

Step 2 - Setup the Data


Let us create a simple dataset of grades and with index as the person who scored that grade.

Step 3 - Iterating and Printing dataframe

for a,b in df.items(): print('index:',a,'Grade:',b)

Now we will be using a for loop and items function to access each element of our pandas series. Basically, our series for now contains index and grade and hence we use element a and b to access each.

Step 4 - Lets look at our dataset now

Once we run the above code snippet, we will see:
