4.7. DataFrame At

4.7.1. Rationale

  • Access a single value for a row/column pair by integer position

  • Use iat if you need to get or set a single value in a DataFrame or Series

  • iat integer at (no fancy indexing)

4.7.2. SetUp

>>> import pandas as pd
>>> import numpy as np
>>> np.random.seed(0)
>>>
>>>
>>> df = pd.DataFrame(
...     columns = ['Morning', 'Noon', 'Evening', 'Midnight'],
...     index = pd.date_range('1999-12-30', periods=7),
...     data = np.random.randn(7, 4))
>>>
>>> df
             Morning      Noon   Evening  Midnight
1999-12-30  1.764052  0.400157  0.978738  2.240893
1999-12-31  1.867558 -0.977278  0.950088 -0.151357
2000-01-01 -0.103219  0.410599  0.144044  1.454274
2000-01-02  0.761038  0.121675  0.443863  0.333674

4.7.3. Get value at specified row/column pair

  • First argument is column

  • Second argument is row

>>> df.iat[0,0]
1.764052345967664
>>>
>>> df.iat[1,0]
1.8675579901499675
>>>
>>> df.iat[0,1]
0.4001572083672233

4.7.4. Get value from row

  • loc returns Series

>>> df.loc['2000-01-01'].iat[1]
0.41059850193837233

4.7.5. Set value at a position

>>> df.iat[0,0] = pd.NA
>>> df
             Morning      Noon   Evening  Midnight
1999-12-30      <NA>  0.400157  0.978738  2.240893
1999-12-31  1.867558 -0.977278  0.950088 -0.151357
2000-01-01 -0.103219  0.410599  0.144044  1.454274
2000-01-02  0.761038  0.121675  0.443863  0.333674
2000-01-03  1.494079 -0.205158  0.313068 -0.854096
2000-01-04  -2.55299  0.653619  0.864436 -0.742165
2000-01-05  2.269755 -1.454366  0.045759 -0.187184
