How to find the installed pandas version

Each Answer to this Q is separated by one/two green lines.

I am having trouble with some of pandas functionalities. How do I check what is my installation version?

Check pandas.__version__:

In [76]: import pandas as pd

In [77]: pd.__version__
Out[77]: '0.12.0-933-g281dc4e'

Pandas also provides a utility function, pd.show_versions(), which reports the version of its dependencies as well:

In [53]: pd.show_versions(as_json=False)

Simplest Solution


import pandas as pd

**Its double underscore before and after the word “version”.




pip freeze

It works the same as above.

pip show pandas

Displays information about a specific package.
For more information, check out pip help


python -c "import pandas as pd; print(pd.__version__)"
conda list | findstr pandas  # Anaconda / Conda
pip freeze | findstr pandas
pip show pandas | findstr Version


python -c "import pandas as pd; print(pd.__version__)"
conda list | grep numpy  # Anaconda / Conda
pip freeze | grep numpy  # pip

In a jupyter notebook cell: pip freeze | grep pandas
