Pandas is a special tool that allows us to perform complex manipulations of data effectively and efficiently. Inside pandas, we mostly deal with a dataset in the form of DataFrame. DataFrames are 2-dimensional data structures in pandas. DataFrames consist of rows, columns, and data.

Sometimes, we need to count the occurrences of column values in a Dataframe, to achieve this task pandas provide us groupby() method which has an attribute called count.

Pandas groupby() counts first groups all the same values and then count attribute will returns an integer value which represents the count of these grouped values i.e., the occurrences of these column values.

Let us understand with the help of an example,

Python code to create column of value_counts in Pandas dataframe

# Importing pandas package
import pandas as pd

# Creating a Dictionary
d = {
    'Dosage':['500 mg','650 mg','1000 mg','amtas 5 mg','amtas-AT']

# Creating a DataFrame
df = pd.DataFrame(d)

# Display original DataFrame
print("Original DataFrame:\n",df,"\n")

# Using groupby count
df['Count'] = df.groupby(['Medicine'])['Dosage'].transform('count')

# Display modified DataFrame
print("Modified DataFrame:\n",df)


Example: Create column of value_counts
