I have a very large data set and I can’t afford to read the entire data set in. So, I’m thinking of reading only one chunk of it to train but I have no idea how to do it. Any thought will be appreciated.
Now we will see solution for issue: Python Pandas: How to read only first n rows of CSV files in?
If you only want to read the first 999,999 (non-header) rows:
If you only want to read rows 1,000,000 … 1,999,999
read_csv(..., skiprows=1000000, nrows=999999)
nrows : int, default None Number of rows of file to read. Useful for
reading pieces of large files*
skiprows : list-like or integer
Row numbers to skip (0-indexed) or number of rows to skip (int) at the start of the file
and for large files, you’ll probably also want to use chunksize:
chunksize : int, default None
Return TextFileReader object for iteration
