Pandas for Everyone: Python Data Analysis (Addison-Wesley)
Pandas for Everyone: Python Data Analysis (Addison-Wesley)
Wednesday, 14 February 2018

This book shows how to use the open source Pandas library with Python to automate and perform data analysis tasks. Author Daniel  Chen introduces key concepts through simple but practical examples, incrementally building on them to solve more difficult, real-world problems. Using a realistic dataset, the book covers combining datasets, handling missing data, and structuring datasets for easier analysis and visualization.

Data cleaning techniques, from basic string manipulation to applying functions simultaneously across dataframes, are also covered. The book also shows how to fit models for prediction, clustering, inference, and exploration.
