Permission denied error stems from not having write access when installing a package. On unix like systems the command is sudo.

So, whatever package manager you use to download pandas, whichever package, start the command with sudo to ensure that you grant yourself write access for a download.

Example: (This is for a Linux box)

sudo apt-get install pip 

And then with pip (the python package manager)

pip install <package-name>

With a Mac, you would either have to use homebrew or macports as your package manager.

Install homebrew like this:

ruby -e $(curl -fsSL

And then use brew to install pip

brew install pip

And just as before pip to install python packages

pip install <package-name>
