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 PeriodIndex.weekday attribute return an Index object containing the day of the week with Monday=0 to Sunday=6 for each period element in the given PeriodIndex object.

Syntax : PeriodIndex.weekday

Parameters : None

Return : Index object



Example #1: Use PeriodIndex.weekday attribute to find out the day of the week for each period element in the given PeriodIndex object.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the PeriodIndex object
pidx = pd.PeriodIndex(start ='2004-11-11 02:45:21 '
               end ='2004-11-21 8:45:29', freq ='D')
  
# Print the PeriodIndex object
print(pidx)

Output :

Now we will use the PeriodIndex.weekday attribute to find the day of the week for each period element in the pidx object.




# return the day of the week
pidx.weekday

Output :

As we can see in the output, the PeriodIndex.weekday attribute has returned an Index object containing the day of the week for each period element contained in the given PeriodIndex object.

pidx.weekday

Output :

As we can see in the output, the PeriodIndex.weekday attribute has returned an Index object containing the day of the week for each period element contained in the given PeriodIndex object.
