I have created a dataframe using the following code.
df = pd.read_csv('state_cpi.csv') data = df.iloc[:,3:]
Then I found the minimum values of each row by using
It gave me the minimum value of each column, but I also want to find out that at which index the min value is available for each column. Please give a sutiable solution for finding the index of the min value of each column. Dataset in this repo
First, you have to fix your data. You have
-- as value for the cell (347, Himachal Pradesh) then you can use
idxmin as suggested:
df = pd.read_csv('state_cpi.csv', na_values='--') out = df.iloc[:, 3:].idxmin()
>>> out Andhra Pradesh 388 Arunachal Pradesh 388 Assam 388 Bihar 388 Chattisgarh 388 Delhi 388 Goa 388 Gujarat 388 Haryana 388 Himachal Pradesh 388 Jharkhand 388 Karnataka 388 Kerala 388 Madhya Pradesh 388 Maharashtra 388 Manipur 388 Meghalaya 388 Mizoram 358 Nagaland 388 Orissa 388 Punjab 388 Rajasthan 388 Sikkim 388 Tamil Nadu 388 Telangana 388 Tripura 388 Uttar Pradesh 388 Uttarakhand 388 West Bengal 388 Andaman and Nicobar 388 Chandigarh 388 Dadra and Nagar Haveli 388 Daman and Diu 388 Jammu and Kashmir 388 Lakshadweep 388 Puducherry 388 dtype: int64
Note: it’s really curious but the min for each column is the row 388. Try to use
idxmax to see the difference.
