Python | Pandas TimedeltaIndex.itemsize

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 TimedeltaIndex.itemsize attribute return the size of the dtype of the item of the underlying data.

Syntax : TimedeltaIndex.itemsize



Return : size of dtype
