How to get row number in dataframe in Pandas?

To get all indices that matches ‘Smith’

>>> df[df['LastName'] == 'Smith'].index
Int64Index([1], dtype='int64')

or as a numpy array

>>> df[df['LastName'] == 'Smith'].index.to_numpy()  # .values on older versions

or if there is only one and you want the integer, you can subset

>>> df[df['LastName'] == 'Smith'].index[0]

You could use the same boolean expressions with .loc, but it is not needed unless you also want to select a certain column, which is redundant when you only want the row number/index.
