Pandas Series.value_counts()

The value_counts() function returns a Series that contain counts of unique values. It returns an object that will be in descending order so that its first element will be the most frequently-occurred element.

By default, it excludes NA values.

Syntax

Parameters

  • normalize: If it is true, then the returned object will contain the relative frequencies of the unique values.
  • sort: It sort by the values.
  • ascending: It sort in the ascending order.
  • bins: Rather than counting the values, it groups them into the half-open bins that provide convenience for the pd.cut, which only works with numeric data.
  • dropna: It does not include counts of NaN.

It returns the counted series.
