How to plot int to datetime on X-axis using Seaborn?

To plot int to datetime on X-axis using Seaborn in matplotlib, we can take the following steps


  • Set the figure size and adjust the padding between and around the subplots.

  • Create a dataframe, df, of two-dimensional, size-mutable, potentially heterogeneous tabular data, with three columns.

  • Create a countplot with int, i.e., dob on the X-axis.

  • Set int to datetime label on the X-axis.

  • To display the figure, use Show() method.


import seaborn as sns
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
import pandas as pd
import numpy as np

# Set the figure size
plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = [7.00, 3.50]
plt.rcParams["figure.autolayout"] = True

# Data frame with 3 columns
df = pd.DataFrame([
    [23, 'James', 1259969793926],
    [39, 'Jimmy', 1259969793927],
    [56, 'Jack', 1259969793929],
    [60, 'Tom', 1259969793928],
    [80, 'Tim', 1259969793939]
], columns=['marks', 'names', 'dob'])

# Create a Countplot with df
ax = sns.countplot(x="dob", data=df)

        pd.to_datetime(tm, unit='ms').strftime('%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S')
        for tm in ax.get_xticks()
    ], rotation=45)

# Display the plot


It will produce the following output −
