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.

Filtering is a process of selecting some sort of information according to our specific demands. Filtering pandas is important for learning about the properties of specific elements and hence results in effective data analysis.

Here, we are going to learn how to filter pandas DataFrame based on value counts? When we filter a DataFrame by one column, we simply compare that column values against a specific condition but when it comes to filtering of DataFrame by on value counts, we use value_count which will return the count of total occurrences of each value.

Let us understand with the help of an example,

Python code to filter a pandas dataframe based on value counts

# Importing pandas package
import pandas as pd

# Creating a dictionary
d = {
    'Mahindra Sales of quarter':[1000,1000,2102,2110],
    'Suzuki Sales of quarter':[1000,1900,2011,2022],
    'Hyundai Sales of quarter':[2000,2000,1000,2230]

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

# Display DataFrame

# Filtering DataFrame
result = df[df['Mahindra Sales of quarter'].map(df['Mahindra Sales of quarter'].value_counts()) > 1]

# Display result


Example: filter a pandas dataframe based on value counts
