NaN values are also called missing values and simply indicate the data we do not have. We do not like to have missing values in a dataset but itโ€™s inevitable to have them in some cases. Therefore, we need to learn how to handle them properly.ย 

There are different ways of handling missing values. In this how-to article, we will learn how to replace NaN values by zeros in Pandas and PySpark DataFrames.

How to Rename a Column in Pandas and Pyspark DataFrame

Pandas

The fillna function can be used for replacing missing values. We just need to write the value to be used as the replacement inside the function.

				
					# Replace all missing values in the DataFrame
df = df.fillna(0)

# Replace missing values in a specific column
df["f2"] = df["f2"].fillna(0)

				
			

PySpark

We can either use fillna or na.fill function. They are aliases and return the same results.

				
					# Replace all missing values in the DataFrame
df = df.na.fill(0)

# Replace missing values in a specific column
df = df.na.fill(0, subset=["f2"])
