Python is a great language for doing data analysis, primarily because of the fantastic ecosystem of data-centric python packages. Pandas is one of those packages and makes importing and analyzing data much easier.

Pandas Period.weekday attribute returns an integer value indicating the weekday of the given period object.

Syntax : Period.weekday

Parameters : None

Return : weekday



Example #1: Use Period.weekday attribute to find out the weekday in the given period object.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the Period object
prd = pd.Period(freq ='S', year = 2000, month = 2, day = 22,
                          hour = 8, minute = 21, second = 24)
  
# Print the Period object
print(prd)

Output :

Now we will use the Period.weekday attribute to find the weekday in prd object.




# return the weekday
prd.weekday

Output :

As we can see in the output, the Period.weekday attribute has returned 1 indicating the given period is the first day of the week.

Example #2: Use Period.weekday attribute to find out the weekday in the given period object.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the Period object
prd = pd.Period(freq ='S', year = 2006, month = 10,
               hour = 15, minute = 49, second = 17)
  
# Print the object
print(prd)

Output :

Now we will use the Period.weekday attribute to find the weekday in prd object.




# return the weekday
prd.weekday

Output :

As we can see in the output, the Period.weekday attribute has returned 6 indicating the given period is the sixth day of the week.
