Python | pandas.period_range() method

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_range() is one of the general functions in Pandas which is used to return a fixed frequency PeriodIndex, with day (calendar) as the default frequency.

Syntax: pandas.to_numeric(arg, errors=’raise’, downcast=None)

Parameters:
start : Left bound for generating periods
end : Right bound for generating periods
periods : Number of periods to generate
freq : Frequency alias
name : Name of the resulting PeriodIndex
