## Using Pandas to Generate Statistics

Pandas is a python module used for data manipulation, statistical analysis and more. In this post, we will go over some of the basic statistical methods in Pandas using the Covid19-India dataset

Since we have explored how to get started with exploring the dataset on Kaggle using the IPL dataset let us go ahead and see how to use the pandas inbuilt methods for statistics.

#### 1. Load the data and fetch basic information about the dataframe

``````>>> covid = pd.read_csv('/kaggle/input/latest-covid19-india-statewise-data/Latest Covid-19 India Status.csv')
>>> covid.shape

(36, 8)
>>> covid.dtypes

State/UTs               object
Total Cases              int64
Active                   int64
Discharged               int64
Deaths                   int64
Active Ratio (%)       float64
Discharge Ratio (%)    float64
Death Ratio (%)        float64
dtype: object
``````

#### 2. Some basic information about the dataset

``````>>> covid.info()
<class 'pandas.core.frame.DataFrame'>
RangeIndex: 36 entries, 0 to 35
Data columns (total 8 columns):
#   Column               Non-Null Count  Dtype
---  ------               --------------  -----
0   State/UTs            36 non-null     object
1   Total Cases          36 non-null     int64
2   Active               36 non-null     int64
3   Discharged           36 non-null     int64
4   Deaths               36 non-null     int64
5   Active Ratio (%)     36 non-null     float64
6   Discharge Ratio (%)  36 non-null     float64
7   Death Ratio (%)      36 non-null     float64
dtypes: float64(3), int64(4), object(1)
memory usage: 2.4+ KB
``````

#### 5. Calculate min and max

• for the entire dataframe: covid.min()
• for a single column: covid['Discharged'].min()
``````>>> covid.min()

State/UTs              Andaman and Nicobar
Total Cases                           7539
Active                                   6
Discharged                            7404
Deaths                                   4
Active Ratio (%)                      0.02
Discharge Ratio (%)                  68.91
Death Ratio (%)                       0.04
dtype: object

>>> covid['Discharged'].min()
7404

>>> covid['Discharged'].max()
6103325
``````

#### 6. calculate mean

``````>>> # mean of each column
>>> covid.mean()

Total Cases            881291.861111
Active                  11248.833333
Discharged             858232.055556
Deaths                  11810.972222
Active Ratio (%)            2.679722
Discharge Ratio (%)        96.059167
Death Ratio (%)             1.261667
dtype: float64

>>> # mean of each row
>>> covid.mean(axis=1)
