Python Pandas - Convert PeriodIndex object to Timestamp

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To convert PeriodIndex object to Timestamp, use the PeriodIndex.to_timestamp() method.

At first, import the required libraries −

import pandas as pd

Create a PeriodIndex object −

periodIndex = pd.PeriodIndex(['2021-09-25 07:30:35', '2019-10-30 04:15:45',
'2020-07-15 02:55:15', '2022-06-25 09:40:55'], freq="Y")

Display PeriodIndex object −

print("PeriodIndex...\n", periodIndex)

Convert PeriodIndex to timestamp −

print("\nPeriodIndex object to timestamp...\n", periodIndex.to_timestamp())

Example

Following is the code −

import pandas as pd

# Create a PeriodIndex object
# PeriodIndex is an immutable ndarray holding ordinal values indicating regular periods in time
# We have set the frequency using the "freq" parameter
periodIndex = pd.PeriodIndex(['2021-09-25 07:30:35', '2019-10-30 04:15:45',
'2020-07-15 02:55:15', '2022-06-25 09:40:55'], freq="Y")

# Display PeriodIndex object
print("PeriodIndex...\n", periodIndex)

# Display PeriodIndex frequency
print("\nPeriodIndex frequency object...\n", periodIndex.freq)

# Display PeriodIndex frequency as string
print("\nPeriodIndex frequency object as a string...\n", periodIndex.freqstr)

# Convert PeriodIndex to timestamp
print("\nPeriodIndex object to timestamp...\n", periodIndex.to_timestamp())

Output

This will produce the following code −

PeriodIndex...
PeriodIndex(['2021', '2019', '2020', '2022'], dtype='period[A-DEC]')

PeriodIndex frequency object...
<YearEnd: month=12>

PeriodIndex frequency object as a string...
A-DEC

PeriodIndex object to timestamp...
DatetimeIndex(['2021-01-01', '2019-01-01', '2020-01-01', '2022-01-01'], dtype='datetime64[ns]', freq=None)
