sklearn.compose.make_column_selector

sklearn.compose.make_column_selector(pattern=None, *, dtype_include=None, dtype_exclude=None)[source]

Create a callable to select columns to be used with ColumnTransformer.

make_column_selector can select columns based on datatype or the columns name with a regex. When using multiple selection criteria, all criteria must match for a column to be selected.

Parameters
patternstr, default=None

Name of columns containing this regex pattern will be included. If None, column selection will not be selected based on pattern.

dtype_includecolumn dtype or list of column dtypes, default=None

A selection of dtypes to include. For more details, see pandas.DataFrame.select_dtypes.

dtype_excludecolumn dtype or list of column dtypes, default=None

A selection of dtypes to exclude. For more details, see pandas.DataFrame.select_dtypes.

Returns
selectorcallable

Callable for column selection to be used by a ColumnTransformer.
