Python - Check if the Pandas Index is of the object dtype

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To check if the Pandas Index is of the object dtype, use the index.is_object() method. At first, import the required libraries -

import pandas as pd

Creating Pandas index −

index = pd.Index(["Electronics", 6, 10.5, "Accessories", 25.6, 30])

Display the Pandas index −

print("Pandas Index...\n",index)

Check whether index values has object dtype −

print("\nIs the Index of object dtype?\n", index.is_object())

Example

Following is the code −

import pandas as pd

# Creating Pandas index
index = pd.Index(["Electronics", 6, 10.5, "Accessories", 25.6, 30])

# Display the Pandas index
print("Pandas Index...\n",index)

# Return the number of elements in the Index
print("\nNumber of elements in the index...\n",index.size)

# Return the dtype of the data
print("\nThe dtype object...\n",index.dtype)

# check whether index values has object dtype
print("\nIs the Index of object dtype?\n", index.is_object())

Output

This will produce the following output −

Pandas Index...
Index(['Electronics', 6, 10.5, 'Accessories', 25.6, 30], dtype='object')

Number of elements in the index...
6

The dtype object...
object

Is the Index of object dtype?
True
