Remove rows from dataset in python

I’m trying to take some rows that are classified as outliers, and remove these rows from the original dataset, but I can’t make it work – do you guys know what goes wrong? I try to run the followin code, and get this error “ValueError: Index data must be 1-dimensional”

#identify outliers
pred = iforest.fit_predict(x)
outlier_index = np.where(pred==-1)
outlier_values = x.iloc[outlier_index]
#remove from dataset (dataset = x)
x_new = x.drop([outlier_values])

outlier_values original dataset

Answer

The outlier_values you linked is a dataframe not a flat list of indexes, so the value error is thrown accordingly.

What you need to do is to extract the list of indexes from the outlier_values dataframe, using:

index_list = outlier_values.index.values.tolist() 

into a list of indexes and then drop those indexes from x.
