Accepted Answer

Check pandas.__version__:

In [76]: import pandas as pd

In [77]: pd.__version__
Out[77]: '0.12.0-933-g281dc4e'

Pandas also provides a utility function, pd.show_versions(), which reports the version of its dependencies as well:

In [53]: pd.show_versions(as_json=False)

Run:

pip  list

You should get a list of packages (including panda) and their versions, e.g.:

beautifulsoup4 (4.5.1)
cycler (0.10.0)
jdcal (1.3)
matplotlib (1.5.3)
numpy (1.11.1)
openpyxl (2.2.0b1)
pandas (0.18.1)
pip (8.1.2)

Simplest Solution

Code:

import pandas as pd
pd.__version__

**Its double underscore before and after the word "version".

Output:

'0.14.1'
2017/12/13

Run

pip freeze

It works the same as above.

pip show pandas

Displays information about a specific package. For more information, check out pip help
