Python | Pandas tseries.offsets.BusinessHour

  • Last Updated : 23 Apr, 2019

Dateoffsets are a standard kind of date increment used for a date range in Pandas. It works exactly like relativedelta in terms of the keyword args we pass in. DateOffets work as follows, each offset specify a set of dates that conform to the DateOffset. For example, Bday defines this set to be the set of dates that are weekdays (M-F).

DateOffsets can be created to move dates forward a given number of valid dates. For example, Bday(2) can be added to a date to move it two business days forward. If the date does not start on a valid date, first it is moved to a valid date and then offset is created.

Pandas tseries.offsets.BusinessHour() function is used to create an offset of business hours.

Syntax: pandas.tseries.offsets.BusinessHour(n=1, normalize=False, start=’09:00′, end=’17:00′, offset=datetime.timedelta(0))

Parameter :
n : number of hours
normalize : Whether to round the result of a DateOffset addition down to the previous midnight.
start : start time
end : end time
offset : offset from the given date



Returns : offset

Example #1: Use pandas.tseries.offsets.BusinessHour() function to create an offset of 5 Business hours.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Creating Timestamp
ts = pd.Timestamp('2019-10-10 07:15:11')
  
# Create an offset of 5 Business hours
bh = pd.tseries.offsets.BusinessHour(n = 5)
  
# Print the Timestamp
print(ts)
  
# Print the Offset
print(bh)

Output :

Now we will add the Business hour offset to the given timestamp object to increment the datetime value.




# Adding the Business hour offset to the given timestamp
new_timestamp = ts + bh
  
# Print the updated timestamp
print(new_timestamp)

Output :



As we can see in the output, we have successfully created an offset of 5 Business hours and added it to the given timestamp.

Example #2: Use pandas.tseries.offsets.BusinessHour() function to create an offset of 10 days and 5 Business hours.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Creating Timestamp
ts = pd.Timestamp('2019-10-10 07:15:11')
  
# Create an offset
bh = pd.tseries.offsets.BusinessHour(offset = datetime.timedelta(days = 10, hours = 10))
  
# Print the Timestamp
print(ts)
  
# Print the Offset
print(bh)

Output :

Now we will add the Business hour offset to the given timestamp object to increment the datetime value.




# Adding the Business hour offset to the given timestamp
new_timestamp = ts + bh
  
# Print the updated timestamp
print(new_timestamp)

Output :

As we can see in the output, we have successfully created an offset and added it to the given timestamp.
