Author: Florent Ravenel​
Description: This notebook provides instructions on how to use Python to create a dataframe from lists.

Input

Import libraries

import pandas as pd

Variables

# Setup your columns name
col_key = "KEYS"
col_value = "VALUE"

Lists

keys = [
1995,
1996,
1997,
1998,
1999,
2000,
2001,
2002,

]
value = [
219,
146,
112,
127,
124,
180,
236,
207,

]

Model

Create zip iterator

# Call zip(iter1, iter2) with one list as iter1 and another list as iter2 to create a zip iterator containing pairs of elements from the two lists.
zip_iterators = zip(keys, value)

Output

Create dataframe

df = pd.DataFrame(zip_iterators, columns=[col_key, col_value])
df
