Series.groupby(by=None, axis=0, level=None, as_index=True, sort=False, group_keys=True, squeeze=False, observed=False, dropna=True)#

Group Series using a mapper or by a Series of columns.

A groupby operation involves some combination of splitting the object, applying a function, and combining the results. This can be used to group large amounts of data and compute operations on these groups.

bymapping, function, label, or list of labels

Used to determine the groups for the groupby. If by is a function, it’s called on each value of the object’s index. If a dict or Series is passed, the Series or dict VALUES will be used to determine the groups (the Series’ values are first aligned; see .align() method). If an cupy array is passed, the values are used as-is determine the groups. A label or list of labels may be passed to group by the columns in self. Notice that a tuple is interpreted as a (single) key.

levelint, level name, or sequence of such, default None

If the axis is a MultiIndex (hierarchical), group by a particular level or levels.

as_indexbool, default True

For aggregated output, return object with group labels as the index. Only relevant for DataFrame input. as_index=False is effectively “SQL-style” grouped output.

sortbool, default False

Sort result by group key. Differ from Pandas, cudf defaults to False for better performance. Note this does not influence the order of observations within each group. Groupby preserves the order of rows within each group.


Returns a groupby object that contains information about the groups.


>>> ser = cudf.Series([390., 350., 30., 20.],
...                 index=['Falcon', 'Falcon', 'Parrot', 'Parrot'],
...                 name="Max Speed")
>>> ser
Falcon    390.0
Falcon    350.0
Parrot     30.0
Parrot     20.0
Name: Max Speed, dtype: float64
>>> ser.groupby(level=0).mean()
Falcon    370.0
Parrot     25.0
Name: Max Speed, dtype: float64
>>> ser.groupby(ser > 100).mean()
Max Speed
False     25.0
True     370.0
Name: Max Speed, dtype: float64
