v0.18.1 (May 3, 2016)

This is a minor bug-fix release from 0.18.0 and includes a large number of bug fixes along with several new features, enhancements, and performance improvements. We recommend that all users upgrade to this version.

Highlights include:

  • .groupby(...) has been enhanced to provide convenient syntax when working with .rolling(..), .expanding(..) and .resample(..) per group, see here
  • pd.to_datetime() has gained the ability to assemble dates from a DataFrame, see here
  • Method chaining improvements, see here.
  • Custom business hour offset, see here.
  • Many bug fixes in the handling of sparse, see here
  • Expanded the Tutorials section with a feature on modern pandas, courtesy of @TomAugsburger. (GH13045).

New features

Custom Business Hour

The CustomBusinessHour is a mixture of BusinessHour and CustomBusinessDay which allows you to specify arbitrary holidays. For details, see Custom Business Hour (GH11514)

In [1]: from pandas.tseries.offsets import CustomBusinessHour

In [2]: from pandas.tseries.holiday import USFederalHolidayCalendar

In [3]: bhour_us = CustomBusinessHour(calendar=USFederalHolidayCalendar())

Friday before MLK Day

In [4]: dt = datetime(2014, 1, 17, 15)

In [5]: dt + bhour_us
Out[5]: Timestamp('2014-01-17 16:00:00')

Tuesday after MLK Day (Monday is skipped because it’s a holiday)

In [6]: dt + bhour_us * 2
Out[6]: Timestamp('2014-01-20 09:00:00')

.groupby(..) syntax with window and resample operations

.groupby(...) has been enhanced to provide convenient syntax when working with .rolling(..), .expanding(..) and .resample(..) per group, see (GH12486, GH12738).

You can now use .rolling(..) and .expanding(..) as methods on groupbys. These return another deferred object (similar to what .rolling() and .expanding() do on ungrouped pandas objects). You can then operate on these RollingGroupby objects in a similar manner.

Previously you would have to do this to get a rolling window mean per-group:

In [7]: df = pd.DataFrame({'A': [1] * 20 + [2] * 12 + [3] * 8,
   ...:                    'B': np.arange(40)})
   ...: 

In [8]: df
Out[8]: 
    A   B
0   1   0
1   1   1
2   1   2
3   1   3
4   1   4
5   1   5
6   1   6
.. ..  ..
33  3  33
34  3  34
35  3  35
36  3  36
37  3  37
38  3  38
39  3  39

[40 rows x 2 columns]
In [9]: df.groupby('A').apply(lambda x: x.rolling(4).B.mean())
Out[9]: 
A    
1  0      NaN
   1      NaN
   2      NaN
   3      1.5
   4      2.5
   5      3.5
   6      4.5
         ... 
3  33     NaN
   34     NaN
   35    33.5
   36    34.5
   37    35.5
   38    36.5
   39    37.5
Name: B, Length: 40, dtype: float64

Now you can do:

In [10]: df.groupby('A').rolling(4).B.mean()
Out[10]: 
A    
1  0      NaN
   1      NaN
   2      NaN
   3      1.5
   4      2.5
   5      3.5
   6      4.5
         ... 
3  33     NaN
   34     NaN
   35    33.5
   36    34.5
   37    35.5
   38    36.5
   39    37.5
Name: B, Length: 40, dtype: float64

For .resample(..) type of operations, previously you would have to:

In [11]: df = pd.DataFrame({'date': pd.date_range(start='2016-01-01',
   ....:                                          periods=4,
   ....:                                          freq='W'),
   ....:                    'group': [1, 1, 2, 2],
   ....:                    'val': [5, 6, 7, 8]}).set_index('date')
   ....: 

In [12]: df
Out[12]: 
            group  val
date                  
2016-01-03      1    5
2016-01-10      1    6
2016-01-17      2    7
2016-01-24      2    8

[4 rows x 2 columns]
In [13]: df.groupby('group').apply(lambda x: x.resample('1D').ffill())
Out[13]: 
                  group  val
group date                  
1     2016-01-03      1    5
      2016-01-04      1    5
      2016-01-05      1    5
      2016-01-06      1    5
      2016-01-07      1    5
      2016-01-08      1    5
      2016-01-09      1    5
...                 ...  ...
2     2016-01-18      2    7
      2016-01-19      2    7
      2016-01-20      2    7
      2016-01-21      2    7
      2016-01-22      2    7
      2016-01-23      2    7
      2016-01-24      2    8

[16 rows x 2 columns]

Now you can do:

In [14]: df.groupby('group').resample('1D').ffill()
Out[14]: 
                  group  val
group date

      2016-01-24      2    8

[16 rows x 2 columns]

Method chaining improvements

The following methods / indexers now accept a callable. It is intended to make these more useful in method chains, see the documentation. (GH11485, GH12533)

  • .where() and .mask()
  • .loc[], iloc[] and .ix[]
  • [] indexing

.where() and .mask()

These can accept a callable for the condition and other arguments.

In [15]: df = pd.DataFrame({'A': [1, 2, 3],
   ....:                    'B': [4, 5, 6],
   ....:                    'C': [7, 8, 9]})
   ....: 

In [16]: df.where(lambda x: x > 4, lambda x: x + 10)
Out[16]: 
    A   B  C
0  11  14  7
1  12   5  8
2  13   6  9

[3 rows x 3 columns]

.loc[], .iloc[], .ix[]

These can accept a callable, and a tuple of callable as a slicer. The callable can return a valid boolean indexer or anything which is valid for these indexer’s input.

# callable returns bool indexer
In [17]: df.loc[lambda x: x.A >= 2, lambda x: x.sum() > 10]
Out[17]: 
   B  C
1  5  8
2  6  9

[2 rows x 2 columns]

# callable returns list of labels
In [18]: df.loc[lambda x: [1, 2], lambda x: ['A', 'B']]
Out[18]: 
   A  B
1  2  5
2  3  6

[2 rows x 2 columns]

[] indexing

Finally, you can use a callable in [] indexing of Series, DataFrame and Panel. The callable must return a valid input for [] indexing depending on its class and index type.

In [19]: df[lambda x: 'A']
Out[19]: 
0    1
1    2
2    3
Name: A, Length: 3, dtype: int64

Using these methods / indexers, you can chain data selection operations without using temporary variable.

In [20]: bb = pd.read_csv('data/baseball.csv', index_col='id')

In [21]: (bb.groupby(['year', 'team'])
   ....:    .sum()
   ....:    .loc[lambda df: df.r > 100]
   ....: )

Assembling Datetimes

pd.to_datetime() has gained the ability to assemble datetimes from a passed in DataFrame or a dict. (GH8158).

In [29]: df = pd.DataFrame({'year': [2015, 2016],
   ....:                    'month': [2, 3],
   ....:                    'day': [4, 5],
   ....:                    'hour': [2, 3]})
   ....: 

In [30]: df
Out[30]: 
   year  month  day  hour
0  2015      2    4     2
1  2016      3    5     3

[2 rows x 4 columns]

Assembling using the passed frame.

In [31]: pd.to_datetime(df)
Out[31]: 
0   2015-02-04 02:00:00
1   2016-03-05 03:00:00
Length: 2, dtype: datetime64[ns]

You can pass only the columns that you need to assemble.

In [32]: pd.to_datetime(df[['year', 'month', 'day']])
Out[32]: 
0   2015-02-04
1   2016-03-05
Length: 2, dtype: datetime64[ns]

Other Enhancements

  • pd.read_csv() now supports delim_whitespace=True for the Python engine (GH12958)

  • pd.read_csv() now supports opening ZIP files that contains a single CSV, via extension inference or explicit compression='zip' (GH12175)

  • pd.read_csv() now supports opening files using xz compression, via extension inference or explicit compression='xz' is specified; xz compressions is also supported by DataFrame.to_csv in the same way (GH11852)

  • pd.read_msgpack() now always gives writeable ndarrays even when compression is used (GH12359).

  • pd.read_msgpack() now supports serializing and de-serializing categoricals with msgpack (GH12573)

  • .to_json() now supports NDFrames that contain categorical and sparse data (GH10778)

  • interpolate() now supports method='akima' (GH7588).

  • pd.read_excel() now accepts path objects (e.g. pathlib.Path, py.path.local) for the file path, in line with other read_* functions (GH12655)

  • Added .weekday_name property as a component to DatetimeIndex and the .dt accessor. (GH11128)

  • Index.take now handles allow_fill and fill_value consistently (GH12631)

    In [33]: idx = pd.Index([1., 2., 3., 4.], dtype='float')
    
    # default, allow_fill=True, fill_value=None
    In [34]: idx.take([2, -1])
    Out[34]: Float64Index([3.0, 4.0], dtype='float64')
    
    In [35]: idx.take([2, -1], fill_value=True)
    Out[35]: Float64Index([3.0, nan], dtype='float64')
    
  • Index now supports .str.get_dummies() which returns MultiIndex, see Creating Indicator Variables (GH10008, GH10103)

    In [36]: idx = pd.Index(['a|b', 'a|c', 'b|c'])
    
    In [37]: idx.str.get_dummies('|')
    Out[37]: 
    MultiIndex(levels=[[0, 1], [0, 1], [0, 1]],
               labels=[[1, 1, 0], [1, 0, 1], [0, 1, 1]],
               names=['a', 'b', 'c'])
    
  • pd.crosstab() has gained a normalize argument for normalizing frequency tables (GH12569). Examples in the updated docs here.

  • .resample(..).interpolate() is now supported (GH12925)

  • .isin() now accepts passed sets (GH12988)

Sparse changes

These changes conform sparse handling to return the correct types and work to make a smoother experience with indexing.

SparseArray.take now returns a scalar for scalar input, SparseArray for others. Furthermore, it handles a negative indexer with the same rule as Index (GH10560, GH12796)

s = pd.SparseArray([np.nan, np.nan, 1, 2, 3, np.nan, 4, 5, np.nan, 6])
s.take(0)
s.take([1, 2, 3])
  • Bug in SparseSeries[] indexing with Ellipsis raises KeyError (GH9467)
  • Bug in SparseArray[] indexing with tuples are not handled properly (GH12966)
  • Bug in SparseSeries.loc[] with list-like input raises TypeError (GH10560)
  • Bug in SparseSeries.iloc[] with scalar input may raise IndexError (GH10560)
  • Bug in SparseSeries.loc[], .iloc[] with slice returns SparseArray, rather than SparseSeries (GH10560)
  • Bug in SparseDataFrame.loc[], .iloc[] may results in dense Series, rather than SparseSeries (GH12787)
  • Bug in SparseArray addition ignores fill_value of right hand side (GH12910)
  • Bug in SparseArray mod raises AttributeError (GH12910)
  • Bug in SparseArray pow calculates 1 ** np.nan as np.nan which must be 1 (GH12910)
  • Bug in SparseArray comparison output may incorrect result or raise ValueError (GH12971)
  • Bug in SparseSeries.__repr__ raises TypeError when it is longer than max_rows (GH10560)
  • Bug in SparseSeries.shape ignores fill_value (GH10452)
  • Bug in SparseSeries and SparseArray may have different dtype from its dense values (GH12908)
  • Bug in SparseSeries.reindex incorrectly handle fill_value (GH12797)

API changes

.groupby(..).nth() changes

The index in .groupby(..).nth() output is now more consistent when the as_index argument is passed (GH11039):

In [38]: df = DataFrame({'A' : ['a', 'b', 'a'],
   ....:                 'B' : [1, 2, 3]})
   ....: 

In [39]: df
Out[39]: 
   A  B
0  a  1
1  b  2
2  a  3

[3 rows x 2 columns]

Previous Behavior:

In [3]: df.groupby('A', as_index=True)['B'].nth(0)
Out[3]:
0    1
1    2
Name: B, dtype: int64

In [4]: df.groupby('A', as_index=False)['B'].nth(0)
Out[4]:
0    1
1    2
Name: B, dtype: int64

New Behavior:

In [40]: df.groupby('A', as_index=True)['B'].nth(0)
Out[40]: 
A
a    1
b    2
Name: B, Length: 2, dtype: int64

In [41]: df.groupby('A', as_index=False)['B'].nth(0)
Out[41]: 
0    1
1    2
Name: B, Length: 2, dtype: int64

Furthermore, previously, a .groupby would always sort, regardless if sort=False was passed with .nth().

In [42]: np.random.seed(1234)

In [43]: df = pd.DataFrame(np.random.randn(100, 2), columns=['a', 'b'])

In [44]: df['c'] = np.random.randint(0, 4, 100)

Previous Behavior:

In [4]: df.groupby('c', sort=True).nth(1)
Out[4]:
          a         b
c

numpy function compatibility

Compatibility between pandas array-like methods (e.g. sum and take) and their numpy counterparts has been greatly increased by augmenting the signatures of the pandas methods so as to accept arguments that can be passed in from numpy, even if they are not necessarily used in the pandas implementation (GH12644, GH12638, GH12687)

  • .searchsorted() for Index and TimedeltaIndex now accept a sorter argument to maintain compatibility with numpy’s searchsorted function (GH12238)
  • Bug in numpy compatibility of np.round() on a Series (GH12600)

An example of this signature augmentation is illustrated below:

In [47]: sp = pd.SparseDataFrame([1, 2, 3])

In [48]: sp
Out[48]: 
   0
0  1
1  2
2  3

[3 rows x 1 columns]

Previous behaviour:

In [2]: np.cumsum(sp, axis=0)
...
TypeError: cumsum() takes at most 2 arguments (4 given)

New behaviour:

In [49]: np.cumsum(sp, axis=0)
Out[49]: 
   0
0  1
1  3
2  6

[3 rows x 1 columns]

Using .apply on groupby resampling

Using apply on resampling groupby operations (using a pd.TimeGrouper) now has the same output types as similar apply calls on other groupby operations. (GH11742).

In [50]: df = pd.DataFrame({'date': pd.to_datetime(['10/10/2000', '11/10/2000']),
   ....:                   'value': [10, 13]})
   ....: 

In [51]: df
Out[51]: 
        date  value
0 2000-10-10     10
1 2000-11-10     13

[2 rows x 2 columns]

Previous behavior:

In [1]: df.groupby(pd.TimeGrouper(key='date', freq='M')).apply(lambda x: x.value.sum())
Out[1]:
...
TypeError: cannot concatenate a non-NDFrame object

# Output is a Series
In [2]: df.groupby(pd.TimeGrouper(key='date', freq='M')).apply(lambda x: x[['value']].sum())
Out[2]:
date
2000-10-31  value    10
2000-11-30  value    13
dtype: int64

New Behavior:

# Output is a Series
In [55]: df.groupby(pd.TimeGrouper(key='date', freq='M')).apply(lambda x: x.value.sum())
Out[55]:
date
2000-10-31    10
2000-11-30    13
Freq: M, dtype: int64

# Output is a DataFrame
In [56]: df.groupby(pd.TimeGrouper(key='date', freq='M')).apply(lambda x: x[['value']].sum())
Out[56]:
            value
date
2000-10-31     10
2000-11-30     13

Changes in read_csv exceptions

In order to standardize the read_csv API for both the c and python engines, both will now raise an EmptyDataError, a subclass of ValueError, in response to empty columns or header (GH12493, GH12506)

Previous behaviour:

In [1]: df = pd.read_csv(StringIO(''), engine='c')
...
ValueError: No columns to parse from file

In [2]: df = pd.read_csv(StringIO(''), engine='python')
...
StopIteration

New behaviour:

In [1]: df = pd.read_csv(StringIO(''), engine='c')
...
pandas.io.common.EmptyDataError: No columns to parse from file

In [2]: df = pd.read_csv(StringIO(''), engine='python')
...
pandas.io.common.EmptyDataError: No columns to parse from file

In addition to this error change, several others have been made as well:

  • CParserError now sub-classes ValueError instead of just a Exception (GH12551)
  • A CParserError is now raised instead of a generic Exception in read_csv when the c engine cannot parse a column (GH12506)
  • A ValueError is now raised instead of a generic Exception in read_csv when the c engine encounters a NaN value in an integer column (GH12506)
  • A ValueError is now raised instead of a generic Exception in read_csv when true_values is specified, and the c engine encounters an element in a column containing unencodable bytes (GH12506)
  • pandas.parser.OverflowError exception has been removed and has been replaced with Python’s built-in OverflowError exception (GH12506)
  • pd.read_csv() no longer allows a combination of strings and integers for the usecols parameter (GH12678)

to_datetime error changes

Bugs in pd.to_datetime() when passing a unit with convertible entries and errors='coerce' or non-convertible with errors='ignore'. Furthermore, an OutOfBoundsDateime exception will be raised when an out-of-range value is encountered for that unit when errors='raise'. (GH11758, GH13052, GH13059)

Previous behaviour:

In [27]: pd.to_datetime(1420043460, unit='s', errors='coerce')
Out[27]: NaT

In [28]: pd.to_datetime(11111111, unit='D', errors='ignore')
OverflowError: Python int too large to convert to C long

In [29]: pd.to_datetime(11111111, unit='D', errors='raise')
OverflowError: Python int too large to convert to C long

New behaviour:

In [2]: pd.to_datetime(1420043460, unit='s', errors='coerce')
Out[2]: Timestamp('2014-12-31 16:31:00')

In [3]: pd.to_datetime(11111111, unit='D', errors='ignore')
Out[3]: 11111111

In [4]: pd.to_datetime(11111111, unit='D', errors='raise')
OutOfBoundsDatetime: cannot convert input with unit 'D'

Other API changes

  • The default for .query()/.eval() is now engine=None, which will use numexpr if it’s installed; otherwise it will fallback to the python engine. This mimics the pre-0.18.1 behavior if numexpr is installed (and which, previously, if numexpr was not installed, .query()/.eval() would raise). (GH12749)
  • pd.show_versions() now includes pandas_datareader version (GH12740)
