Python – How to get the row count of a Pandas DataFrame


I'm trying to get the number of rows of dataframe df with Pandas, and here is my code.

Method 1:

total_rows = df.count
print total_rows + 1

Method 2:

total_rows = df['First_columnn_label'].count
print total_rows + 1

Both the code snippets give me this error:

TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for +: 'instancemethod' and 'int'

What am I doing wrong?

Best Solution

For a dataframe df, one can use any of the following:

Performance plot

Code to reproduce the plot:

import numpy as np
import pandas as pd
import perfplot
    setup=lambda n: pd.DataFrame(np.arange(n * 3).reshape(n, 3)),
    n_range=[2**k for k in range(25)],
        lambda df: len(df.index),
        lambda df: df.shape[0],
        lambda df: df[df.columns[0]].count(),
    labels=["len(df.index)", "df.shape[0]", "df[df.columns[0]].count()"],
    xlabel="Number of rows",
