Change Value of a Dataframe Column Based on a Filter with specific parameters

I’m looking at this but I have no idea how to formulate it:
Change Value of a Dataframe Column Based on a Filter

I need to change the values in medianIncome with values of 0.4999 or lower to 0.4999 or if 15.0001 or higher to 15.0001.

Here’s sample data:

It shows:

np.where(df[‘x’] > 0 & df[‘y’] < 10, 1, 0)

So I’m at:

np.where(housing['medianIncome'] > 15.0001

And I’m stuck as to the rest. Only using pandas and numpy, not able to use lambda.

I’m expecting an outcome that won’t give an error. As of yet, I don’t have an outcome.

>Solution :

Use Series.clip:

housing = pd.DataFrame({'medianIncome':[20,5,0.07]})

housing['medianIncome'] = housing['medianIncome'].clip(upper=15.0001, lower=0.4999)

print (housing)
   medianIncome
0       15.0001
1        5.0000
2        0.4999

Alternative with numpy.select if need set another values by conditions:

housing['medianIncome'] = np.select([housing['medianIncome'].lt(0.4999),
                                     housing['medianIncome'].gt(15.0001)],
                                     [0,1], 
                                     default=housing['medianIncome'])

print (housing)
   medianIncome
0           1.0
1           5.0
2           0.0
