In this pandas tutorial, we will discuss about:

  • corrwith in pandas - how to calculate pair wise correlations of each rows or columns with in the given two pandas DataFrames?
  • corrwith pandas example

Before understanding about corrwith method in pandas, lets create dataframes.

 

Pandas DataFrame is an two dimensional data structure that will store data in two dimensional format. One dimension refers to a row and second dimension refers to a column, So It will store the data in rows and columns.

 

We can able to create this DataFrame using DataFrame() method. But this is available in pandas module, so we have to import pandas module.

Syntax:

pandas.DataFrame(data)

Where data is the input dataframe. The data can be a dictionary that stores list of values with specified key.

 

Example: Create DataFrame

In this example, we will create 2 dataframes with 4 rows and 3 columns each with random data and assign indices through index parameter.

import pandas as pd

#create dataframe1 from the data
data1= pd.DataFrame({
                    'length':[5.6,7.8,4.5,5.3],

                   "breadth":[12.9,4.5,21.5,6.0],

                    "area":[20,56,43,45]

                   },index=['one','two','three','four'])

#display the dataframe1
print(data1)

#create dataframe2 from the college2 data
data2= pd.DataFrame({
                    'length':[15.6,7.48,6.5,5.3],

                   "breadth":[132.9,4.5,231.5,43.0],

                    "area":[230,156,433,45]

                   },index=['one','two','three','four'])

#display the dataframe2
print(data2)

Output: Dataframes created below

       length  breadth  area
one       5.6     12.9    20
two       7.8      4.5    56
three     4.5     21.5    43
four      5.3      6.0    45
       length  breadth  area
one     15.60    132.9   230
two      7.48      4.5   156
three    6.50    231.5   433
four     5.30     43.0    45

Now lets use these dataframes to understand corrwith in pandas.


corrwith in pandas

corrwith in pandas or corrwith() is the function used to calculate pair wise correlations among  the two pandas DataFrames.

 

Correlation means relation between two numeric and continuous variables.

let, x is the first variable and y is the second variable.

  • if x is increasing, and y is also increasing along with x , then we can say the correlation as positive correlation.(For this the correlation coefficient is 1)
  • if x is increasing, and y is decreasing with x , then we can say the correlation as negative correlation.(For this the correlation coefficient is -1)
  • if x and y are not equal to eahc other, er can say it as no correlation.(For this the correlation coefficient is 0)

Syntaxcorrwith in pandas syntax is given below

dataframe1.corrwith(dataframe2)

where,

  1. dataframe1 is the first input dataframe.
  2. dataframe2 is the second input dataframe.

Now lets see an example on corrwith function in pandas.

 

Examplecorrwith pandas example

import pandas as pd

#create dataframe1 from the college1 data
data1= pd.DataFrame({
                    'length':[5.6,7.8,4.5,5.3],

                   "breadth":[12.9,4.5,21.5,6.0],

                    "area":[20,56,43,45]

                   },index=['one','two','three','four'])


#create dataframe2 from the college2 data
data2= pd.DataFrame({
                    'length':[15.6,7.48,6.5,5.3],

                   "breadth":[132.9,4.5,231.5,43.0],

                    "area":[230,156,433,45]

                   },index=['one','two','three','four'])

#correlation among both dataframes
print(data1.corrwith(data2))

Output:

From the above corrwith in pandas code,  correlation is performed across the two dataframes with respect to columns

length     0.037391
breadth    0.995479
area      -0.194768
dtype: float64

This wraps up our session on corrwith method in pandas and corrwith pandas example.
