Syntax : Period.freqstr



Parameters : None

Return : string

Example #1: Use Period.freqstr attribute to find the string alias of the time series frequency applied on the given Period object.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the Period object
prd = pd.Period(freq ='D', year = 2001, month = 2, day = 21)
  
# Print the Period object
print(prd)

Output :

Now we will use the Period.freqstr attribute to find the string alias of the frequency applied on prd object.




# return the string alias of the frequency
prd.freqstr

Output :



As we can see in the output, the Period.freqstr attribute has returned ‘D’ indicating that the time series frequency applied on the given object was day.

Example #2: Use Period.freqstr attribute to find the string alias of the time series frequency applied on the given Period object.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the Period object
prd = pd.Period(freq ='Q', year = 2006, quarter = 1)
  
# Print the object
print(prd)

Output :

Now we will use the Period.freqstr attribute to find the string alias of the frequency applied on prd object.




# return the string alias of the frequency
prd.freqstr

Output :

As we can see in the output, the Period.freqstr attribute has returned ‘Q-DEC’ indicating that the time series frequency applied on the given object was the end quarter of the year.
