# How to do a density plot using Pandas

• 1 minDensity plots are **extremely **useful when you want to do some **data exploration.**

With density plots you can **determine **what **kind **of **data **you are looking at.

Together with the histogram, they are building blocks of data exploration.

Here is how to do a density plot using the **Pandas library.**

```
# How to do a density plot using Pandas
# We import the pandas library
import pandas as pd
# We create our sample dataframe
# The col1 variable has a mean of 10 and a std of 5
# The col2 variable has a mean of 20 and a std of 10
df = pd.DataFrame({"col1": [6, 12, 12, 4, 21, 12, 15, 11, 16, 8],
"col2": [20, 26, 26, 1, 11, 18, 20, 12, 23, 19]})
df.plot(kind='density')
```

As we can see we are using the **DataFrame.plot() **method that will plot an density plot as specified with the **kind="density"** parameter.

Here is the result.
