We will explain how to get data type of single and multiple columns in Pyspark with an example.

  • Get data type of single column in pyspark  using printSchema() function
  • Get data type of single column in pyspark using dtypes

  • Get data type of all the column in pyspark

We will use the dataframe named df_basket1.
