Instruction

Alright, it's time for DataFrame rows now. If you want to select a specific row based on its position, you can use iloc[...]. This is similar to selecting an element from a Python list. iloc stands for integer location. Take a look:

hospitals.iloc[0]
0
Hospital Name Abbeville Area Medical Center
City Abbeville
State SC
Phone Number 8643665011
Hospital overall rating 4

The expression above will select the first row from the hospitals DataFrame. Again, the result will be a Series, so if you need a DataFrame, provide a list of indexes:

hospitals.iloc[[0]]
Hospital Name City State Phone Number Hospital overall rating
0 Abbeville Area Medical Center Abbeville SC 8643665011 4

Exercise

Select the third row of eu_states as a new DataFrame.

Stuck? Here's a hint!

Remember that the third row has an index value of 2.
