How to pass different set of data to train and test without splitting a dataframe. (python)?


I have gone through multiple questions that help divide your dataframe into train and test, with scikit, without etc.

But my question is I have 2 different csvs ( 2 different dataframes from different years). I want to use one as train and other as test?

How to do so for LinearRegression / any model?


  • Load the datasets individually.
  • Make sure they are in the same format of rows and columns (features).
  • Use the train set to fit the model.
  • Use the test set to predict the output after training.
# Load the data
train = pd.read_csv('train.csv')
test = pd.read_csv('test.csv')

# Split features and value
# when trying to predict column "target" 
X_train, y_train = train.drop("target"), train["target"]
X_test, y_test = test.drop("target"), test["target"]

# Fit (train) model
reg = LinearRegression(), y_train)

# Predict
pred = reg.predict(X_test)

# Score
accuracy = reg.socre(X_test, y_test)
