Python - Merge Pandas DataFrame with Left Outer Join

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To merge Pandas DataFrame, use the merge() function. The left outer join is implemented on both the DataFrames by setting under the “how” parameter of the merge() function i.e. −

how = “left”

At first, let us import the pandas library with an alias −

import pandas as pd

Let’s create two DataFrames to be merged −

# Create DataFrame1
dataFrame1 = pd.DataFrame(
   {
      "Car": ['BMW', 'Lexus', 'Audi', 'Mustang', 'Bentley', 'Jaguar'],"Units": [100, 150, 110, 80, 110, 90]
   }
)

# Create DataFrame2
dataFrame2 = pd.DataFrame(
   {
      "Car": ['BMW', 'Lexus', 'Tesla', 'Mustang', 'Mercedes', 'Jaguar'],"Reg_Price": [7000, 1500, 5000, 8000, 9000, 6000]

   }
)

Merge DataFrames with common column Car and "left" in "how" parameter implements Left Outer Join −

mergedRes = pd.merge(dataFrame1, dataFrame2, on ='Car', how ="left")

Example

Following is the code −

import pandas as pd

# Create DataFrame1
dataFrame1 = pd.DataFrame(
   {
      "Car": ['BMW', 'Lexus', 'Audi', 'Mustang', 'Bentley', 'Jaguar'],"Units": [100, 150, 110, 80, 110, 90]
   }
)

print"DataFrame1 ...\n",dataFrame1

# Create DataFrame2
dataFrame2 = pd.DataFrame(
   {
      "Car": ['BMW', 'Lexus', 'Tesla', 'Mustang', 'Mercedes', 'Jaguar'],"Reg_Price": [7000, 1500, 5000, 8000, 9000, 6000]

   }
)

print"\nDataFrame2 ...\n",dataFrame2

# merge DataFrames with common column Car and "left" in "how" parameter implements Left Outer Join
mergedRes = pd.merge(dataFrame1, dataFrame2, on ='Car', how ="left")
print"\nMerged dataframe with left outer join...\n", mergedRes

Output

This will produce the following output −

DataFrame1 ...
       Car   Units
0      BMW     100
1    Lexus     150
2     Audi     110
3  Mustang      80
4  Bentley     110
5   Jaguar      90

DataFrame2 ...
        Car   Reg_Price
0       BMW        7000
1     Lexus        1500
2     Tesla        5000
3   Mustang        8000
4  Mercedes        9000
5    Jaguar        6000

Merged dataframe with left outer join...
       Car   Units   Reg_Price
0      BMW     100      7000.0
1    Lexus     150      1500.0
2     Audi     110         NaN
3  Mustang      80      8000.0
4  Bentley     110         NaN
5   Jaguar      90      6000.0
