How to convert list column into a single column and the concat in pandas dataframe


I would like convert each list column into one single column and then concat for below dataframe

 data = {'labels': ['[management,workload,credibility]','[ethic,hardworking,profession]'],
    'Score': [[0.55,0.36,0.75],[0.41,0.23,0.14]]}
 # Create DataFrame
 df = pd.DataFrame(data)

new dataframe output should look like this

    labels         Score
    management      0.55
    workload        0.36    
    credibility     0.75
    ethic           0.41
    hardworking     0.23
    profession      0.14

Thank you

Create lists from labels column by Series.str.strip and Series.str.split and then use DataFrame.explode:

df1 = (df.assign(labels= df['labels'].str.strip('[]').str.split(','))

For oldier pandas versions use:

df1 = (df.assign(labels= df['labels'].str.strip('[]').str.split(','))
         .apply(lambda x: x.explode()))
print (df1)
        labels Score
0   management  0.55
0     workload  0.36
0  credibility  0.75
1        ethic  0.41
1  hardworking  0.23
1   profession  0.14
