What does the command df describe do for Python Pandas Dataframe

Hi. I am learning Python Pandas and I came across this command called df.describe() and I don't know what it does. I tried printing it, and shows some values. I don't know what these values are. Please tell.

Hi @Rajat, if you printed the output, you should have seen what the output is, at the leftmost side of the display. Anyways the df.describe() command displays different values such as count, mean, max, etc. Here's a sample output:

              A         B         C         D
count  6.000000  6.000000  6.000000  6.000000
mean   0.073711 -0.431125 -0.687758 -0.233103
std    0.843157  0.922818  0.779887  0.973118
min   -0.861849 -2.104569 -1.509059 -1.135632
25%   -0.611510 -0.600794 -1.368714 -1.076610
50%    0.022070 -0.228039 -0.767252 -0.386188
75%    0.658444  0.041933 -0.034326  0.461706
max    1.212112  0.567020  0.276232  1.071804
