I've got a dataframe with a multi index of Year and Month like the following

Year   Month  Value 

1992     1    3

         2     5

         3     8

        …….    …….

1993    1      2

I'm trying to select the maximum Value for each year and put that in a DF like this:

Year     Max

1992       5

1993       2


There's not much info on multi-indexes, should I simply do a group by and apply or something similar to make it more simple?

You can simply use max function for your solution:

#bernie's sample data

df = df.max(level=0)

print (df)

Caps      0    

A     1.131616

B     2.010710
