Python | Pandas TimedeltaIndex.sort_values
  • Last Updated : 06 Jan, 2019

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.sort_values() function return a sorted copy of the given TimedeltaIndex object.

Syntax : TimedeltaIndex.sort_values(return_indexer=False, ascending=True)

Parameters :
ascending : decides order

Return : object of same type



Example #1: Use TimedeltaIndex.sort_values() function to sort the given TimedeltaIndex object in ascending order.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the TimedeltaIndex object
tidx = pd.TimedeltaIndex(data =['3 days 10:22:56', '1 days 06:05:01.000030',
                                   '19 days 12:22:56', '1 days 02:00:00',
                           '21 days 06:15:01.000030'], name ='Old_object')
  
# Print the TimedeltaIndex object
print(tidx)

Output :

Now we will use the TimedeltaIndex.sort_values() function to sort tidx object.




# sort the values in the given 
# object in ascending order
tidx.sort_values()

Output :

As we can see in the output, the TimedeltaIndex.sort_values() function has returned an object which is sorted in ascending order.
 
Example #2: Use TimedeltaIndex.sort_values() function to sort the given TimedeltaIndex object in descending order.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the TimedeltaIndex object
tidx = pd.TimedeltaIndex(data =['3 days 10:22:56', '1 days 06:05:01.000030',
                             '19 days 12:22:56', '1 days 02:00:00',
                           '21 days 06:15:01.000030'], name ='Old_object')
  
# Print the TimedeltaIndex object
print(tidx)

Output :

Now we will use the TimedeltaIndex.sort_values() function to sort tidx object.




# sort the values in the given object in descending order
tidx.sort_values(ascending = False)

Output :

As we can see in the output, the TimedeltaIndex.sort_values() function has returned an object which is sorted in descending order.
