Python | Pandas tseries.offsets.BusinessHour.name

| |

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.name Pandas tseries.offsets.BusinessHour.name returns the frequency applied to the given offset as a string.

Syntax: pandas.tseries.offsets.BusinessHour.name

Parameter: None

Returns: frequency applied as string

Example # 1: Use the pandas.tseries.offsets.BusinessHour.name attribute to return the name of the frequency applied to the given offset as a string.

# 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 (n = 5 )

 
# Print time stamp

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 print the name of the frequency applied to this offset as a string.

# Add a business hour offset to the specified time stamp

new_timestamp = ts + bh

 
# Print updated timestamp

print (new_timestamp)

 
# print frequency name
# is used as a string

print (bh.name)

Output:

As we can see in the output, we have successfully created an offset and added it to the given timestamp. we also printed the name of the frequency applied to this offset as a string.

Example # 2: Use the pandas.tseries.offsets.BusinessHour.name attribute to return the name of the frequency applied to the given offset as a string.

# 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 time stamp

print (ts)

 
# Print offset

print (bh)

Output:

Now we will add a business hour offset to this timestamp object to increase the datetime value ... We will also print the name of the frequency applied to this offset as a string.

# Add a business hour offset to the specified time stamp

new_timestamp = ts + bh

 
# Print updated timestamp

print (new_timestamp)

 
# print frequency name
# is used as a string

print (bh.name)

Output:

As we can see in the output, we have successfully created an offset and added it to the given timestamp. we also printed the name of the frequency applied to the given offset as a string.
