Detect existing (non-missing) values.

Return a boolean same-sized object indicating if the values are not NA. Non-missing values get mapped to True. Characters such as empty strings '' or numpy.inf are not considered NA values (unless you set pandas.options.mode.use_inf_as_na = True). NA values, such as None or numpy.NaN, get mapped to False values.


Mask of bool values for each element in DataFrame that indicates whether an element is not an NA value.

Show which entries in a DataFrame are not NA.

>>> df = pd.DataFrame(dict(age=[5, 6, np.NaN],
...                    born=[pd.NaT, pd.Timestamp('1939-05-27'),
...                          pd.Timestamp('1940-04-25')],
...                    name=['Alfred', 'Batman', ''],
...                    toy=[None, 'Batmobile', 'Joker']))
>>> df
