pandas.Series.argsort

Series.argsort(axis=0, kind='quicksort', order=None)[source]

Return the integer indices that would sort the Series values.

Override ndarray.argsort. Argsorts the value, omitting NA/null values, and places the result in the same locations as the non-NA values.

Parameters
axis{0 or “index”}

Has no effect but is accepted for compatibility with numpy.

kind{‘mergesort’, ‘quicksort’, ‘heapsort’, ‘stable’}, default ‘quicksort’

Choice of sorting algorithm. See numpy.sort() for more information. ‘mergesort’ and ‘stable’ are the only stable algorithms.

orderNone

Has no effect but is accepted for compatibility with numpy.

Returns
Series
