Series.agg(func=None, axis=0, *args, **kwargs)[source]#

Aggregate using one or more operations over the specified axis.

funcfunction, str, list or dict

Function to use for aggregating the data. If a function, must either work when passed a Series or when passed to Series.apply.

Accepted combinations are:

  • function

  • string function name

  • list of functions and/or function names, e.g. [np.sum, 'mean']

  • dict of axis labels -> functions, function names or list of such.

axis{0 or ‘index’}

Unused. Parameter needed for compatibility with DataFrame.


Positional arguments to pass to func.


Keyword arguments to pass to func.

scalar, Series or DataFrame

The return can be:

  • scalar : when Series.agg is called with single function

  • Series : when DataFrame.agg is called with a single function

  • DataFrame : when DataFrame.agg is called with several functions

Transform function producing a Series with like indexes.


The aggregation operations are always performed over an axis, either the index (default) or the column axis. This behavior is different from numpy aggregation functions (mean, median, prod, sum, std, var), where the default is to compute the aggregation of the flattened array, e.g., numpy.mean(arr_2d) as opposed to numpy.mean(arr_2d, axis=0).

agg is an alias for aggregate. Use the alias.

Functions that mutate the passed object can produce unexpected behavior or errors and are not supported. See Mutating with User Defined Function (UDF) methods for more details.

A passed user-defined-function will be passed a Series for evaluation.

If func defines an index relabeling, axis must be 0 or index.
