Python | Pandas Timestamp.dst

  • Last Updated : 08 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 Timestamp.dst() function return a timedelta object which contains self.tzinfo.dst(self) value. It returns the Daylight Saving Time for the timezone of the given Timestamp object.

Syntax : Timestamp.dst()

Parameters : None

Return : dst



Example #1: Use Timestamp.dst() function to find the Daylight Saving Time for the given Timestamp object.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the Timestamp object
ts = pd.Timestamp('2015-03-31 15:47:25.901597', tz = 'US/Eastern')
  
# Print the Timestamp object
print(ts)

Output :

Now we will use the Timestamp.dst() function to find the dst of the given object.




# return the dst
ts.dst()

Output :

As we can see in the output, the Timestamp.dst() function has returned a timedelta object containing the Daylight Saving Time for the given Timestamp object.
 
Example #2: Use Timestamp.dst() function to find the Daylight Saving Time for the given Timestamp object.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the Timestamp object
ts = pd.Timestamp(year = 2009,  month = 5, day = 31
        hour = 4, second = 49, tz = 'Europe/Berlin')
  
# Print the Timestamp object
print(ts)

Output :



Now we will use the Timestamp.dst() function to find the dst of the given object.




# return the dst
ts.dst()

Output :

As we can see in the output, the Timestamp.dst() function has returned a timedelta object containing the Daylight Saving Time for the given Timestamp object.
