pandas.Series.case_when#

Series.case_when(caselist)[source]#

Replace values where the conditions are True.

Parameters:
caselistA list of tuples of conditions and expected replacements

Takes the form: (condition0, replacement0), (condition1, replacement1), … . condition should be a 1-D boolean array-like object or a callable. If condition is a callable, it is computed on the Series and should return a boolean Series or array. The callable must not change the input Series (though pandas doesn`t check it). replacement should be a 1-D array-like object, a scalar or a callable. If replacement is a callable, it is computed on the Series and should return a scalar or Series. The callable must not change the input Series (though pandas doesn`t check it).

Added in version 2.2.0.

Returns:
Series

>>> b = pd.Series([0, 3, 4, 5])
>>> c.case_when(
...     caselist=[
...         (a.gt(0), a),  # condition, replacement
...         (b.gt(0), b),
...     ]
