Index.sort_values() is used to sort index values. The function returns a sorted copy of the index. In addition to sorting numeric values, the function can also sort string values.
Syntax: Index.sort_values (return_indexer = False, ascending = True)
return_indexer: Should the indices that would sort the index be returned.
ascending: Should the index values be sorted in an ascending order.
Returns: Sorted copy of the index.
indexer: numpy.ndarray, optional
The indices that the index itself was sorted by.
Example # 1: strong> Use
Index.sort_values () to sort the values present in the index.
Now we will sort the labels index in ascending order.
As we can see in the output, the function returned the index with sorted labels.
Example # 2: Use
Index.sort_values () to sort the index marks in descending order.
We will now sort the index marks in ascending order.
How we see in the output that the function returned a new index with labels sorted in descending order.
