pandas.Series.clip_upper

Series.clip_upper(self, threshold, axis=None, inplace=False)[source]

Trim values above a given threshold.

Deprecated since version 0.24.0: Use clip(upper=threshold) instead.

Elements above the threshold will be changed to match the threshold value(s). Threshold can be a single value or an array, in the latter case it performs the truncation element-wise.

Parameters
thresholdnumeric or array-like

Maximum value allowed. All values above threshold will be set to this value.

  • float : every value is compared to threshold.

  • array-like : The shape of threshold should match the object it’s compared to. When self is a Series, threshold should be the length. When self is a DataFrame, threshold should 2-D and the same shape as self for axis=None, or 1-D and the same length as the axis being compared.

axis{0 or ‘index’, 1 or ‘columns’}, default 0

Align object with threshold along the given axis.

inplacebool, default False

Whether to perform the operation in place on the data.

New in version 0.21.0.

Returns
Series or DataFrame

Original data with values trimmed.
