I am trying to do a naive Bayes and after loading some data into a dataframe in Pandas, the describe function captures the data I want. I'd like to capture the mean and std from each column of the table but am unsure on how to do that. I've tried things like:

df.describe([mean])

df.describe(['mean'])

df.describe().mean

None are working. I was able to do something similar in R with summary but don't know how to do in Python. Can someone lend some advice?

Try the below line of code:

df.describe(include='all').loc['mean']

And if you want mean and std both then write the below code:

df.describe()[['mean', 'std']].
