Summary

Instruction

Well done! By default, rows are sorted in ascending order. If you want to have them sorted in descending order, you need to write:

hospitals = hospitals.sort_values(by='Hospital overall rating', ascending=0)

In pandas, ascending=0 means "sort in descending order".

Exercise

Now, which country has the greatest area in the EU? Sort the rows in eu_states by the Area column in descending order.

Stuck? Here's a hint!

Use ascending=0 in the parentheses.
