Write a program in Python to filter only integer elements in a given series

PythonPandasServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Input − Assume you have the following series −

0    1
1    2
2    python
3    pandas
4    3
5    4
6    5

Output − The result for only integer elements are −

0    1
1    2
4    3
5    4
6    5

Solution 1

  • Define a Series.

  • Apply lambda filter method inside a regular expression to validate digits and expression accepts only strings so convert all the elements into strings. It is defined below,

   data = pd.Series(ls)
   result = pd.Series(filter(lambda x:re.match(r"\d+",str(x)),data))
  • Finally, check the values using the isin() function.

Example

Let us see the following implementation to get a better understanding.

import pandas as pd
ls = [1,2,"python","pandas",3,4,5]
data = pd.Series(ls)
for i,j in data.items():
   if(type(j)==int):
      print(i,j)

Output

0    1
1    2
4    3
5    4
6    5

Solution 2

Example

import pandas as pd
import re
ls = [1,2,"python","pandas",3,4,5]
data = pd.Series(ls)
result = pd.Series(filter(lambda x:re.match(r"\d+",str(x)),data))
print(data[data.isin(result)])

Output

0 1
1 2
4 3
5 4
6 5
