Python | Pandas TimedeltaIndex.shift()

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.shift() function performs specialized shift on the given TimedeltaIndex object, which produces a DatetimeIndex object.

Syntax : TimedeltaIndex.shift(n, freq=None)

Parameters :
n : Periods to shift by
freq : DateOffset or timedelta-like, optional

Return : shifted : DatetimeIndex



Example #1: Use TimedeltaIndex.shift() function to shift the given TimedeltaIndex object by 2 periods.

import pandas as pd
  
# Create the TimedeltaIndex object
tidx = pd.TimedeltaIndex(start ='11 days 22:14:12.001124',
                                   periods = 5, freq ='T')
  
# Print the TimedeltaIndex object
print(tidx)
