import pandas as pd;
dataSet = pd.read_csv("winequality-red.csv");
dataSet.describe(include = 'all');

When view data set as data frame ,it show empty table.But when printing dataSet,I get following result.

<class 'pandas.core.frame.DataFrame'>
RangeIndex: 1599 entries, 0 to 1598
Data columns (total 12 columns):

Welcome to the site! Instead of describe, try print(dataSet.head()) and that should show you some of the data in your dataframe.

  • $\begingroup$ that works.but I want to get the count,mean,max,std like details using describe() $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @KHK That doesn't mean you still can't get it via other ways - Pandas supports all of the functions you mentioned. $\endgroup$ Feb 27, 2019 at 16:59

After importing the pandas library and reading the input data set,to get the statistical summary such as mean,max,count,standard deviation. Run the Project File and Execute the below commands in Python Console Window to obtain the results. Please refer the screenshots for reference.


Option 1: dataSet.describe() or Option 2: dataSet.describe(include='all')Output Screensot
