by Abdul Rawoof A R Updated: Jan 12, 2023
In this kit, we're going to see how to rename columns of a given dataframe in pandas with simple steps. One way of renaming the columns in a Pandas Dataframe is by using the rename() function. This method is quite useful when we need to rename some selected columns because we need to specify information only for the columns which are to be renamed. Rename Columns with List using set_axis() Alternatively, you can use DataFrame. set_axis() method to rename columns with list. use inplace=True param to rename columns on the existing DataFrame object. If you wanted to rename a single column by Index on pandas DataFrame then you can just assign a new value to the df. columns. values[idx] , replace idx with the right index where you wanted to rename.
Please check the below code to know how to rename columns of a given dataframe in pandas,
