The pop() method in pandas is used to delete a column from a dataframe. The column name that is passed to the function is dropped from the dataframe and returned as series.
Let’s read a dataset to work with.
import pandas as pd url="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/bprasad26/lwd/master/data/winequality-red.csv" df = pd.read_csv(url) df.head()
Now, Let’s say you want to delete the pH column. For that you can use the pop method.
# delete the pH column ph = df.pop('pH') ph.head()
Now if you check the dataframe you will see that pH column has been deleted.
