Python Data Types - Explained with Examples

Dive into Python data types! A comprehensive guide with real-world examples, unraveling the versatility and power of data types for efficient coding in Python

Built-in Data Types

In programming, data type is an important concept.

Variables can store data of different types, and different types can do different things.

Python has the following data types built-in by default, in these categories:

Text Type:str
Numeric Types:int, float, complex
Sequence Types:list, tuple, range
Mapping Type:dict
Set Types:set, frozenset
Boolean Type:bool
Binary Types:bytes, bytearray, memoryview
None Type:NoneType

Getting the Data Type

You can get the data type of any object by using the type() function:


Print the data type of the variable x:

x = 5

Setting the Data Type

In Python, the data type is set when you assign a value to a variable:

Setting the Specific Data Type

If you want to specify the data type, you can use the following constructor functions:
