Hi, I would like to check if the pd.dataframe.plot has or has not the same functionality when it comes to plot two or more lines into the same line chart area. In simple terms, would be possible to do the same thing as in the link below using pd.dataframe.plot?
Yes you should be able to do it. Since the
pd.DataFrame.plot function returns a
matplotlib.axes.Axes object, you can use all functionalities.
You could perhaps try the following :-
woman_degrees.plot(x = 'Year', y = 'Biology', label = 'Women', c = 'blue')
This should work.
Thank you for your reply. However, can I use the method above to address the problem below?
"We can calculate the percentages of Biology degrees awarded to men by subtracting each value in the
Biology column from
How can I subtract a value from Biology to draw the second line?
Ahh!! okay, I understand your question now.
Since the method is
DataFrame.plot, the DataFrame supplied becomes the input for the plot function, after which only the column names via strings can be accessed.
Here is a work around for what you want to achieve -
women_degrees[‘Biology_men’] = 100 - women_degrees[‘Biology’]
fig, ax = plt.subplots()
women_degrees.plot(x= ‘Year’, y= ‘Biology’, ax= ax, c= ‘b’, label= ‘Women’)
women_degrees.plot(x= ‘Year’, y= ‘Biology_men’, ax= ax, c= ‘g’, label= ‘Men’)
This will plot two lines on the same figure. Only drawback is that you would have to create a new column in the DataFrame. I know this doesn’t exactly achieve what you wanted to do, but you can try this out once.
Thank you very much. I’m just exploring the language and just wondered if that could have been done differently.
