5/10 Cleaning and Preparing Data in Python - Index Error

Screen Link: Learn data science with Python and R projects

What am I doing wrong here?

My Code:

for row in moma:
    gender = row[5]
    gender = gender.title()
    if not gender:
        gender = "Gender Unknown/Other"
    row[5] = gender

What I expected to happen:
Print out the value under the gender column in row 100.

What actually happened:

IndexError                                Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-1-729aef00c16a> in <module>
     25     row[5] = gender
---> 27 print(row[100][5])

IndexError: list index out of range

Hi and welcome to the community!

You should change row for moma in this line:


'cause when you refer to row[100] you refer to the 100th column of the last row which does not exist in our dataset.

Thanks for the clarification! I understood better and got it now.

Oh, no! I previously included the link to my screen, didn’t know I was supposed to remove these chars <–!. I have corrected it, thanks for pointing out that!
