  1. As you can imagine, since data science is being deployed
  2. in such a wide range of fields, data scientists use
  3. many different tools, depending on the task at hand. One
  4. of the most versatile and ubiquitous is a Python package called
  5. Pandas, which we'll use in order to handle and manipulate
  6. data during this course. You might wonder why we'll be using
  7. Pandas, as opposed to another tool. Pandas allows us to
  8. structure and manipulate our data in ways that are particularly well-suited
