Python | Pandas tseries.offsets.BusinessDay.rule_code

| |

DateOffsets can be created to move dates by a specified number of valid dates. For example, Bday (2) can be added to a date to move it two business days forward. If the date does not start with a valid date, it is first moved to a valid date and then an offset is generated.

tseries.offsets.BusinessDay.rule_code Pandas attribute tseries.offsets.BusinessDay.rule_code allows you to use offset in functions for simplicity instead of importing and initializing the class. It also returns the rule code for the frequency that applies to the offset object.

Syntax: pandas.tseries.offsets.BusinessDay.rule_code

Parameter: None

Returns: rule_code

Example # 1: Use the attribute pandas.tseries.offsets.BusinessDay.rule_code to return the code of the frequency rule applied to this offset object.

# import pandas as pd

import pandas as pd

 
# Create a timestamp

ts = pd.Timestamp ( ’2019-10-10 07: 15: 11’ )

 
# Create offset 5 business days

bd = pd.tseries.offsets.BusinessDay (n = 5 )

 
# Print time stamp

print (ts)

 
# Print DateOffset

print (bd)

Output:

Now we will add the workday offset to this timestamp object, to increase the datetime value. We will also print the code of the frequency rule applied to this offset object.

# Add a workday offset to this timestamp

new_timestamp = ts + bd

 
# Print updated timestamp

print (new_timestamp)

 
# Print the code of the applied frequency rule
# on the given object offsets

print (bd.rule_code)

Exit :

As we can see from the output, we have successfully created an offset of 5 business days and added it to the given timestamp. We also printed the code of the frequency rule to apply to this offset object.

Example # 2: Use the pandas.tseries.offsets.BusinessDay.rule_code attribute to return the code of the frequency rule applied to the given offset object.

# import pandas as pd

import pandas as pd

  
# Create a timestamp

ts = pd.Timestamp ( ’2019-10-10 07: 15: 11’ )

 
# Create an offset of 10 business days and 10 hours

bd = pd.tseries.offsets.BusinessDay (offset = datetime.timedelta (days = 10 , hours = 10 ))

 
# Print time stamp

print (ts)

 
# Print DateOffset

print (bd)

Output:

Now we will add the workday offset to this tag object time to increase the datetime value. We will also print the code of the frequency rule applied to this offset object.

# Add a workday offset to this timestamp

new_timestamp = ts + bd

 
# Print updated timestamp

print (new_timestamp)

 
# Print the code of the applied frequency rule
# on the given object offsets

print (bd.rule_code)

Exit :

As we can see from the output, we have successfully created an offset of 10 business days and 10 hours and added it to the given time stamp. We’ve also printed the code for the frequency rule to apply to the given offset object.
