Pandas Datetime: Extract year, month, day, hour, minute, second and weekday from unidentified flying object (UFO) reporting date

Pandas Datetime: Exercise-8 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to extract year, month, day, hour, minute, second and weekday from unidentified flying object (UFO) reporting date.

Sample Solution :

Python Code :

import pandas as pd
df = pd.read_csv(r'ufo.csv')
df['Date_time'] = df['Date_time'].astype('datetime64[ns]')
print("Original Dataframe:")
print(df.head())
print("\nYear:")
print(df.Date_time.dt.year.head())
print("\nMonth:")
print(df.Date_time.dt.month.head())
print("\nDay:")
print(df.Date_time.dt.day.head())
print("\nHour:")
print(df.Date_time.dt.hour.head())
print("\nMinute:")
print(df.Date_time.dt.minute.head())
print("\nSecond:")
print(df.Date_time.dt.second.head())
print("\nWeekday:")
print(df.Date_time.dt.weekday_name.head())

Sample Output:

4 1960-10-10 20:00:00               kaneohe     ...      21.418056 -157.803611

Python: Tips of the Day

F strings:

It is a common practice to add variables inside strings. F strings are by far the coolest way of doing it. To appreciate the f strings more, let's first perform the operation with the format function.

name = 'Owen'
age = 25
print("{} is {} years old".format(name, age))

Output:

Owen is 25 years old

We specify the variables that go inside the curly braces by using the format function at the end. F strings allow for specifying the variables inside the string.

name = 'Owen'
age = 25
print(f"{name} is {age} years old")

Output:

Owen is 25 years old

F strings are easier to follow and type. Moreover, they make the code more readable.

A, B, C = {2, 4, 6}
print(A, B, C)
A, B, C = ['p', 'q', 'r']
print(A, B, C)

Output:

2 4 6
p q r
