Write a program in Python to filter City column elements by removing the unique prefix in a given dataframe

PythonPandasServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Assume you have a dataframe, the result for removing unique prefix city names are,

  Id  City
2 3 Kolkata
3 4 Hyderabad
6 7 Haryana
8 9 Kakinada
9 10 Kochin

To solve this, we will follow the steps given below −

Solution

  • Define a dataframe

  • Create an empty list to append all the city column values first char’s,

l = []
for x in df['City']:
   l.append(x[0])
  • Create another empty list to filter repeated char.

Set for loop and if condtion to append unique char’s. It is defined below,

l1 = []
for j in l:
   if(l.count(j)>1):
      if(j not in l1):
         l1.append(j)
  • Create another empty list. Set for loop to access city column values and check the elements first char is present in l1 then append it to another list.

l2 = []
for x in df['City']:
   if(x[0] in l1):
      l2.append(x)
  • Finally, verify the l2 elements is present in the city column or not and print the dataframe using isin().

df[df['City'].isin(l2)]

Example

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

import pandas as pd
df = pd.DataFrame({'Id':[1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10],
                     'City':['Chennai','Delhi','Kolkata','Hyderabad','Pune','Mumbai','Haryana','B engaluru','Kakinada','Kochin']
                  })
l = []
for x in df['City']:
   l.append(x[0])
l1 = []
for j in l:
   if(l.count(j)>1):
      if(j not in l1):
         l1.append(j)
l2 = []
for x in df['City']:
   if(x[0] in l1):
      l2.append(x)
print(df[df['City'].isin(l2)])

Output

 Id   City
2 3 Kolkata
3 4 Hyderabad
6 7 Haryana
8 9 Kakinada
9 10 Kochin
