Python pandas package can be installed via multiple ways which are −
Using Anaconda distributions Using mini conda Using pip
If you are using anaconda distribution already in your system then no need to install pandas again Because pandas is a part of anaconda distribution. So we can directly import the pandas.
To install a specific pandas version, give the below command
conda install pandas=1.1.5
This will install the pandas 1.1.5 version
Both Anaconda and minconda use the conda package installer, but using anaconda will occupy more system storage. Because anaconda has more than 100 packages, those are automatically installed and the result needs more space.
To overcome this we can use miniconda as it is a minimal version of conda’s installer. Install pandas by using the below command.
conda install pandas
This command will install pandas latest version onto your system.
Pip is a package installer for Python, as we are using python already in our systems we can directly use the below command in the command prompt (for windows users) and terminal (for ubuntu users).
pip install pandas
This will download the pandas package, wait for download completion. If you see any pip up-gradation error then just upgrade the pip by below command
python -m pip install --upgrade pip
And again run pip install pandas command this time it will work.
By using any of these above ways, we can install pandas. After that, we can import pandas by using the import keyword in python, and then only we can work with the pandas package.
