pandas.arrays.IntegerArray

class pandas.arrays.IntegerArray(values, mask, copy=False)[source]

Array of integer (optional missing) values.

New in version 0.24.0.

Warning

IntegerArray is currently experimental, and its API or internal implementation may change without warning.

We represent an IntegerArray with 2 numpy arrays:

  • data: contains a numpy integer array of the appropriate dtype
  • mask: a boolean array holding a mask on the data, True is missing

To construct an IntegerArray from generic array-like input, use pandas.array() with one of the integer dtypes (see examples).

See Nullable Integer Data Type for more.

Parameters:
values : numpy.ndarray

A 1-d integer-dtype array.

mask : numpy.ndarray

A 1-d boolean-dtype array indicating missing values.

copy : bool, default False

Whether to copy the values and mask.

Returns:
IntegerArray

Examples

Create an IntegerArray with pandas.array().

>>> int_array = pd.array([1, None, 3], dtype=pd.Int32Dtype())
>>> int_array
<IntegerArray>
[1, NaN, 3]
Length: 3, dtype: Int32

String aliases for the dtypes are also available. They are capitalized.

>>> pd.array([1, None, 3], dtype='Int32')
<IntegerArray>
[1, NaN, 3]
Length: 3, dtype: Int32
>>> pd.array([1, None, 3], dtype='UInt16')
<IntegerArray>
[1, NaN, 3]
Length: 3, dtype: UInt16
