First off, thanks in advance if you can help puzzle this out! I'm trying to balance some customer data for my model. My targets are all 1s and 0s, and the 0s are overwhelmingly abundant. So I created a counter that will start to delete the 0 rows once they surpass the number of 1 rows. But at the very end of my code, when I create the np.delete to get those extra rows off my dataset I keep getting this error

I don't really know what to try, because I don't even understand what the error is telling me

import pandas as pd 

import numpy as np 

from sklearn import preprocessing


#Loading the Raw Data

raw_csv_data= pd.read_csv('Audiobooks-data_raw.csv')








#Separate the Targets from the dataset

inputs_all= df.loc[:,'Book length (mins)_overall':'Last visited minus Purchase date']

targets_all= df['Targets']




#Shuffling the Data to prep for balancing

shuffled_indices= np.arange(inputs_all.shape[0])


shuffled_inputs= inputs_all.iloc[shuffled_indices]

shuffled_targets= targets_all[shuffled_indices]


#Balance the Dataset

#There are significantly more 0's than 1's in our target.

#We want a good accurate model




num_one_targets= int(np.sum(targets_all))

zero_targets_counter= 0

indices_to_remove= []



for i in range(targets_all.shape[0]):

    if targets_all[i]==0:

        zero_targets_counter +=1

        if zero_targets_counter> num_one_targets:



inputs_all_balanced= np.delete(inputs_all, indices_to_remove, axis=0)

targets_all_balanced= np.delete(targets_all, indices_to_remove, axis=0)

Everything works except when I try to group my balanced datasets and delete the excess 0 rows. Here is the error:

Use pandas drop:

inputs_all_balanced  = inputs_all.drop(indices_to_remove,axis=0)

targets_all_balanced = targets_all.drop(indices_to_remove,axis=0)
