Pandas - Get index values of a DataFrame as a List

In this post, we are going to explain to get the index values of a DataFrame. We will get the index values in a List. We will be using DataFrame.index.values to do it.
import pandas as pd

# create a dataframe
df = pd.DataFrame({
  "id": [1, 2, 3, 4, 5],
  "name": ["Joy", "Rick", "Carol", "Dumpty", "Clark"],
  "designation": ["Programmer", "Manager", "Admin", "Accountant", "Designer"]
})

print(df)

# get all the indexes
indexes = df.index.values.tolist()

print("All indexes of DataFrame df are: ", end="")
print(indexes)

All indexes of DataFrame df are: [0, 1, 2, 3, 4]

If you want to get all the index values of a DataFrame, you can use one of the code examples explained below.

# Method 1: Using df.index.values.tolist()

We can get df.index object from the DataFrame and then get the index values from it. In order to do that we can use the below code.

result = df.index.values.tolist()

# Method 2: Using list(df.index.values)

result = list(df.index.values)

Example 2

import pandas as pd

# create a dataframe
df = pd.DataFrame({
  "col_a": ["A", "B", "C", "D", "E"],
  "col_b": [10, 20, 30, 40, 50]
})

# get all the indexes
indexes = list(df.index.values)

print(indexes)

Output

[0, 1, 2, 3, 4]
