Fix Python – Convert pandas data frame to series


Asked By – user1357015

I’m somewhat new to pandas. I have a pandas data frame that is 1 row by 23 columns.

I want to convert this into a series? I’m wondering what the most pythonic way to do this is?

I’ve tried pd.Series(myResults) but it complains ValueError: cannot copy sequence with size 23 to array axis with dimension 1. It’s not smart enough to realize it’s still a “vector” in math terms.

If you have a one column dataframe df, you can convert it to a series:

df.iloc[:,0]  # pandas Series

Since you have a one row dataframe df, you can transpose it so you’re in the previous case:
