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 the data.

There is always some kind of similarity/difference between all the values of all the columns in pandas DataFrame. This similarity or difference is known as the correlation of values in a DataFrame. To find the correlation in pandas, we use pandas.DataFrame.corr() method in pandas.

pandas.DataFrame.corr() Method

This method is used to find the pair-wise correlation (similarities/differences) of the column values. An important point is if there is any null value present in any column, pandas.DataFrame.corr() automatically excludes it and also the non-numeric data is ignored.


DataFrame.corr(method='pearson', min_periods=1)

To work with pandas, we need to import pandas package first, below is the syntax:

import pandas as pd

Let us understand with the help of an example.

# Importing pandas package
import pandas as pd

# Importing seaborn package
import seaborn as sn

# Import matplotlib package
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

# Create a DataFrame
df = pd.DataFrame({

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

# Finding correlation
result = df.corr(method ='pearson')

# Display result
print("Correlation in DataFrame is:\n",result,"\n")


Example 1: Get plot correlation matrix

For visualising the correlation matrix, use the following code:

# Visualising Correlation
sn.heatmap(result, annot=True)



Example 2: Get plot correlation matrix
