Skimpy a better way to analyze your df than `.describe()`

A few words about a Python libray/package I discover and this might be way better than .describe as we know it!

What is skimpy?

skimpy is a light weight tool that provides summary statistics about variables in data frames within the console. -- Philip Vollet

I tested it just after seeing the tweet. And I could say it's great and I like it! Yes, it's no news that I like data and this library from Python could be used for SEO purposes.

How to install skimpy?

You can:

  1. go to
  2. do a pip install
  3. load it thanks to from skimpy import skim
  4. test it on your dataframe skim(df)

These steps are:

    !pip install
    from skimpy import skim

Where df will be your dataframe with you own data. If you want to test it out of the box, there is a test data df that you can create with df = generate_test_data()

What could be the output of skimpy

This is an example I took from one of my data frame from GSC data -- as you will see with clicks and impressions from the screen capture below.

What do we learn with skimpy? More information on your dataframe and I found it more complete than .describe()from pandas.
