How to sum all the values in a dictionary?


As you'd expect:

sum(d.values())


In Python 2 you can avoid making a temporary copy of all the values by using the itervalues() dictionary method, which returns an iterator of the dictionary's keys:

sum(d.itervalues())

In Python 3 you can just use d.values() because that method was changed to do that (and itervalues() was removed since it was no longer needed).

To make it easier to write version independent code which always iterates over the values of the dictionary's keys, a utility function can be helpful:

import sysdef itervalues(d):    return iter(getattr(d, ('itervalues', 'values')[sys.version_info[0]>2])())sum(itervalues(d))

This is essentially what Benjamin Peterson's six module does.


Sure there is. Here is a way to sum the values of a dictionary.

>>> d = {'key1':1,'key2':14,'key3':47}>>> sum(d.values())62
