Can we select columns of a Pandas dataframe in any order?
You certainly can! When selecting multiple columns from a DataFrame, you can order the columns however you would like them to appear. This is particularly useful because if we wanted to see the data in a certain way different from the original column order, we can reorder them in the output however we need.
df = pd.DataFrame([ ['Doe', 'Jane'], ['Law', 'Bob']], columns = ['last_name', 'first_name']) # We can select the first_name column first, # then the last_name. full_names = df[['first_name', 'last_name']]
