# Write a program in Python to create a panel from a dictionary of dataframe and print the maximum value of the first column

PythonPandasServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

The result for a maximum value of the first column in panel is

maximum value of first column is ;
Column1    1.377292

## Solution

To solve this, we will follow the below approach −

• Set data value as dictionary key is ‘Column1’ with value as pd.DataFrame(np.random.randn(5, 3))

data = {'Column1' : pd.DataFrame(np.random.randn(5, 3))}
• Assign data to Panel and save it as p

p = pd.Panel(data)
• Print the column using dict key Column1

print(p['Column1'])
• Calculate the maximum value of first column using, minor_xs(0) ,

p.minor_xs(0).max()

### Example

Let’s see the following code to get a better understanding −

import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
data = {'Column1' : pd.DataFrame(np.random.randn(5, 3))}
p = pd.Panel(data)
print("Panel values:")
print(p['Column1'])
print("maximum value of first column is:")
print(p.minor_xs(0).max())

### Output

Panel values:
0          1       2
0 0.914209  -0.665899 -0.703097
1 -1.375634 -0.164529 -0.673326
2 1.377292   0.692793  0.390777
3 -0.899618 -1.163681  0.954463
4  0.025898  0.832265  0.173535
maximum value of first column is:
Column1    1.377292
dtype: float64
