In Python, we can easily get a random boolean using the Python **random()** or **choice()** function from the random module.

```
import random import choice, random
#Using random.random()
random_bool_with_random = True if random() > 0.5 else False
#Using random.choice()
random_bool_with_choice = choice([True, False])
print(random_bool_with_random)
print(random_bool_with_choice)
#Output:
True
False
```

Being able to generate random numbers efficiently when working with a programming language is very important. In Python, we can generate random number easily to get random boolean values.

To get a boolean randomly, we can use the Python random module. In the Python random module, we can use the Python **random()** function, or Python **choice()** function.

The **random()** function generates a random float between 0 and 1. The Python **choice()** function takes in a list of choices and gives a random selection from those choices.

Below is an example of how to get a boolean values randomly in Python.

```
import random import choice, random
#Using random.random()
random_bool_with_random = True if random() > 0.5 else False
#Using random.choice()
random_bool_with_choice = choice([True, False])
print(random_bool_with_random)
print(random_bool_with_choice)
#Output:
True
False
```

One such application of generating random boolean values would be if you wanted to generate a coin flip in Python.

Below is some sample code of how you could flip a coin in Python using the random module.

```
from random import choice, random
#Using random.choice()
coin_flip_with_choice = choice(["Heads","Tails"])
#Using random.random()
coin_flip_with_random = "Heads" if random() > 0.5 else "Tails"
print(coin_flip_with_choice)
print(coin_flip_with_random)
#Output:
Tails
Heads
```

## Using Python to Generate a List of Random Booleans in a Loop

If you want to generate a list of random booleans, we can easily define a function and use a loop in Python.

In this example, we will create a function which takes one argument, the number of booleans you want to create, and will return a list of random booleans.

Below is some sample code which will get the random booleans for you in Python.

```
from random import random
def rand_bools(n):
bools = []
for x in range(0,n):
bools.append(True if random() > 0.5 else False)
return bools
print(rand_bools(10))
#Output:
[True, True, True, True, True, False, True, True, True, False]
```

## Generating a Random Boolean With Probability

In the examples above, we’ve been assuming that we want to have 50% True and 50% False generated from our Python program.

If we want to creat a random boolean based on a probability, we can use the **random()** function and adjust the threshold.

For example, if we want to generate True 70% of the time, then we would do the following in Python:

```
import random import choice, random
#Using random.random()
random_bool_with_random = True if random() > 0.7 else False
```

## Generating Random Booleans with numpy and pandas in Python

If you are using numpy or pandas, we can fill a column with random boolean values using the numpy **random.rand()** allows us to generate random numbers in the same way as the Python random module.

Below is some code which will allow you to get boolean values randomly in Python with numpy.

```
import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
coin_flip_series = pd.Series(np.random.randint(2, size=10))
print(coin_flip_series)
#Output:
0 1
1 0
2 0
3 0
4 1
5 1
6 1
7 0
8 0
9 1
dtype: int32
```
