pandas.CategoricalIndex

class pandas.CategoricalIndex[source]

Immutable Index implementing an ordered, sliceable set. CategoricalIndex represents a sparsely populated Index with an underlying Categorical.

New in version 0.16.1.

Parameters:

data : array-like or Categorical, (1-dimensional)

categories : optional, array-like

categories for the CategoricalIndex

ordered : boolean,

designating if the categories are ordered

copy : bool

Make a copy of input ndarray

name : object

Name to be stored in the index
