pandas.Series.resample

Series.resample(rule, how=None, axis=0, fill_method=None, closed=None, label=None, convention='start', kind=None, loffset=None, limit=None, base=0, on=None, level=None)[source]

Resample time-series data.

Convenience method for frequency conversion and resampling of time series. Object must have a datetime-like index (DatetimeIndex, PeriodIndex, or TimedeltaIndex), or pass datetime-like values to the on or level keyword.

Parameters:

rule : str

The offset string or object representing target conversion.

how : str

Method for down/re-sampling, default to ‘mean’ for downsampling.

Deprecated since version 0.18.0: The new syntax is .resample(...).mean(), or .resample(...).apply(<func>)

axis : {0 or ‘index’, 1 or ‘columns’}, default 0

Which axis to use for up- or down-sampling. For Series this will default to 0, i.e. along the rows. Must be DatetimeIndex, TimedeltaIndex or PeriodIndex.

fill_method : str, default None

Filling method for upsampling.

Deprecated since version 0.18.0: The new syntax is .resample(...).<func>(), e.g. .resample(...).pad()

closed : {‘right’, ‘left’}, default None

Which side of bin interval is closed. The default is ‘left’ for all frequency offsets except for ‘M’, ‘A’, ‘Q’, ‘BM’, ‘BA’, ‘BQ’, and ‘W’ which all have a default of ‘right’.

label : {‘right’, ‘left’}, default None

Which bin edge label to label bucket with. The default is ‘left’ for all frequency offsets except for ‘M’, ‘A’, ‘Q’, ‘BM’, ‘BA’, ‘BQ’, and ‘W’ which all have a default of ‘right’.

convention : {‘start’, ‘end’, ‘s’, ‘e’}, default ‘start’

For PeriodIndex only, controls whether to use the start or end of rule.

kind : {‘timestamp’, ‘period’}, optional, default None

Pass ‘timestamp’ to convert the resulting index to a DateTimeIndex or ‘period’ to convert it to a PeriodIndex. By default the input representation is retained.

loffset : timedelta, default None

Adjust the resampled time labels.

limit : int, default None

Maximum size gap when reindexing with fill_method.

Deprecated since version 0.18.0.

base : int, default 0

For frequencies that evenly subdivide 1 day, the “origin” of the aggregated intervals. For example, for ‘5min’ frequency, base could range from 0 through 4. Defaults to 0.

on : str, optional

For a DataFrame, column to use instead of index for resampling. Column must be datetime-like.

New in version 0.19.0.

level : str or int, optional

For a MultiIndex, level (name or number) to use for resampling. level must be datetime-like.

New in version 0.19.0.

Returns:
Resampler object

Examples

Start by creating a series with 9 one minute timestamps.

>>> index = pd.date_range('1/1/2000', periods=9, freq='T')
>>> series = pd.Series(range(9), index=index)
>>> series
2000-01-01 00:00:00    0
2000-01-01 00:01:00    1
2000-01-01 00:02:00    2
2000-01-01 00:03:00    3
2000-01-01 00:04:00    4
2000-01-01 00:05:00    5
2000-01-01 00:06:00    6
2000-01-01 00:07:00    7
2000-01-01 00:08:00    8
Freq: T, dtype: int64

Downsample the series into 3 minute bins and sum the values of the timestamps falling into a bin.

>>> series.resample('3T').sum()
2000-01-01 00:00:00     3
2000-01-01 00:03:00    12
2000-01-01 00:06:00    21
Freq: 3T, dtype: int64

Downsample the series into 3 minute bins as above, but label each bin using the right edge instead of the left. Please note that the value in the bucket used as the label is not included in the bucket, which it labels. For example, in the original series the bucket 2000-01-01 00:03:00 contains the value 3, but the summed value in the resampled bucket with the label 2000-01-01 00:03:00 does not include 3 (if it did, the summed value would be 6, not 3). To include this value close the right side of the bin interval as illustrated in the example below this one.

>>> series.resample('3T', label='right').sum()
2000-01-01 00:03:00     3
2000-01-01 00:06:00    12
2000-01-01 00:09:00    21
Freq: 3T, dtype: int64

Downsample the series into 3 minute bins as above, but close the right side of the bin interval.

>>> series.resample('3T', label='right', closed='right').sum()
2000-01-01 00:00:00     0
2000-01-01 00:03:00     6
2000-01-01 00:06:00    15
2000-01-01 00:09:00    15
Freq: 3T, dtype: int64

Upsample the series into 30 second bins.

>>> series.resample('30S').asfreq()[0:5]   # Select first 5 rows
2000-01-01 00:00:00   0.0
2000-01-01 00:00:30   NaN
2000-01-01 00:01:00   1.0
2000-01-01 00:01:30   NaN
2000-01-01 00:02:00   2.0
Freq: 30S, dtype: float64

Upsample the series into 30 second bins and fill the NaN values using the pad method.

>>> series.resample('30S').pad()[0:5]
2000-01-01 00:00:00    0
2000-01-01 00:00:30    0
2000-01-01 00:01:00    1
2000-01-01 00:01:30    1
2000-01-01 00:02:00    2
Freq: 30S, dtype: int64

Upsample the series into 30 second bins and fill the NaN values using the bfill method.

>>> series.resample('30S').bfill()[0:5]
2000-01-01 00:00:00    0
2000-01-01 00:00:30    1
2000-01-01 00:01:00    1
2000-01-01 00:01:30    2
2000-01-01 00:02:00    2
Freq: 30S, dtype: int64

Pass a custom function via apply

>>> def custom_resampler(array_like):
...     return np.sum(array_like) + 5
...
>>> series.resample('3T').apply(custom_resampler)
2000-01-01 00:00:00     8
2000-01-01 00:03:00    17
2000-01-01 00:06:00    26
Freq: 3T, dtype: int64

For a Series with a PeriodIndex, the keyword convention can be used to control whether to use the start or end of rule.

Resample a year by quarter using ‘start’ convention. Values are assigned to the first quarter of the period.

>>> s = pd.Series([1, 2], index=pd.period_range('2012-01-01',
...                                             freq='A',
...                                             periods=2))
>>> s
2012    1
2013    2
Freq: A-DEC, dtype: int64
>>> s.resample('Q', convention='start').asfreq()
2012Q1    1.0
2012Q2    NaN
2012Q3    NaN
2012Q4    NaN
2013Q1    2.0
2013Q2    NaN
2013Q3    NaN
2013Q4    NaN
Freq: Q-DEC, dtype: float64

Resample quarters by month using ‘end’ convention. Values are assigned to the last month of the period.

>>> q = pd.Series([1, 2, 3, 4], index=pd.period_range('2018-01-01',
...                                                   freq='Q',
...                                                   periods=4))
>>> q
2018Q1    1
2018Q2    2
2018Q3    3
2018Q4    4
Freq: Q-DEC, dtype: int64
>>> q.resample('M', convention='end').asfreq()
2018-03    1.0
2018-04    NaN
2018-05    NaN
2018-06    2.0
2018-07    NaN
2018-08    NaN
2018-09    3.0
2018-10    NaN
2018-11    NaN
2018-12    4.0
Freq: M, dtype: float64

For DataFrame objects, the keyword on can be used to specify the column instead of the index for resampling.

>>> d = dict({'price': [10, 11, 9, 13, 14, 18, 17, 19],
...           'volume': [50, 60, 40, 100, 50, 100, 40, 50]})
>>> df = pd.DataFrame(d)
>>> df['week_starting'] = pd.date_range('01/01/2018',
...                                     periods=8,
...                                     freq='W')
>>> df
   price  volume week_starting
0     10      50    2018-01-07
1     11      60    2018-01-14
2      9      40    2018-01-21
3     13     100    2018-01-28
4     14      50    2018-02-04
5     18     100    2018-02-11
6     17      40    2018-02-18
7     19      50    2018-02-25
>>> df.resample('M', on='week_starting').mean()
               price  volume
week_starting
2018-01-31     10.75    62.5
2018-02-28     17.00    60.0

For a DataFrame with MultiIndex, the keyword level can be used to specify on which level the resampling needs to take place.

>>> days = pd.date_range('1/1/2000', periods=4, freq='D')
>>> d2 = dict({'price': [10, 11, 9, 13, 14, 18, 17, 19],
...            'volume': [50, 60, 40, 100, 50, 100, 40, 50]})
>>> df2 = pd.DataFrame(d2,
...                    index=pd.MultiIndex.from_product([days,
...                                                     ['morning',
...                                                      'afternoon']]
...                                                     ))
>>> df2
                      price  volume
2000-01-01 morning       10      50
           afternoon     11      60
2000-01-02 morning        9      40
           afternoon     13     100
2000-01-03 morning       14      50
           afternoon     18     100
2000-01-04 morning       17      40
           afternoon     19      50
>>> df2.resample('D', level=0).sum()
            price  volume
2000-01-01     21     110
2000-01-02     22     140
