How to compute correlation using Pandas

0 min

When analyzing data, you will end up needing to check the existing correlation between two different variables.

The DataFrame.corr() method will give you the correlation between your dataframe variables.

# We import the libraries
import pandas as pd
import numpy as np

# Define two variables that have some correlation between each other
# Using the multivariate normal function from numpy
df = pd.DataFrame(np.random.multivariate_normal(mean=[0,0],
                                                cov=[[1, 0], [0, 100]],
# We print the correlation between those two columns
