Python | Pandas tseries.offsets.BusinessHour.copy

| |

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.BusinessHour.copy() Pandas tseries.offsets.BusinessHour.copy() is used to create a copy of this offset object.

Syntax: pandas.tseries.offsets.BusinessHour.copy ()

Parameter: None

Returns: copy

Example # 1: Use pandas.tseries.offsets.BusinessHour.copy () to create a copy of this offset object.

# import pandas as pd

import pandas as pd

 
# Create timestamp

ts = pd.Timestamp ( ’2019-10-10 11: 15: 00’ )

  
# Create offset

bh = pd.tseries.offsets.BusinessHour (n = 5 )

  
# Print time stamp

print (ts)

 
# Print offset

print (bh)

Output:

Now we will add the working hour offset to this object timestamps to increment the datetime value. We will also create a copy of this offset object.

# Add a business hour offset to the specified time stamp

new_timestamp = ts + bh

 
# Print updated timestamp

print (new_timestamp)

 
# create a copy

bh_copy = bh.copy ()

 
# Check if both objects are the same

print (bh is bh_copy)

Output:

As we can see in the output, we have successfully created an offset and added it to the given timestamp. We also checked if the two copies are the same or not.

Example # 2: Use pandas.tseries.offsets.BusinessHour.copy () to create a copy of this offset object.

# import pandas as pd

import pandas as pd

 
# Create a timestamp

ts = pd .Timestamp ( ’2019-10-10 11: 15: 00’ )

 
# Create offset

bh = pd.tseries.offsets.BusinessHour (offset = datetime.timedelta (hours = 1 ))

 
# Print a mark time

print (ts)

 
# Print offset

print (bh)

Output:

We will now add a business hour offset to this timestamp object to increase the datetime value. We will also create a copy of this offset object.

# Add a business hour offset to the specified time stamp

new_timestamp = ts + bh

 
# Print updated timestamp

print (new_timestamp)

 
# create a copy

bh_copy = bh.copy ()

 
# Check if both objects are the same

print (bh is bh_copy)

Output:

How we can see in the output, we have successfully created an offset and added it to the given timestamp. We also checked if the two copies are the same or not.
