What’s new in 0.24.0 (January 25, 2019)#
Warning
The 0.24.x series of releases will be the last to support Python 2. Future feature releases will support Python 3 only. See Dropping Python 2.7 for more details.
This is a major release from 0.23.4 and includes a number of API changes, new features, enhancements, and performance improvements along with a large number of bug fixes.
Highlights include:
Check the API Changes and deprecations before updating.
These are the changes in pandas 0.24.0. See Release notes for a full changelog including other versions of pandas.
Enhancements#
Optional integer NA support#
pandas has gained the ability to hold integer dtypes with missing values. This long requested feature is enabled through the use of extension types.
Note
IntegerArray is currently experimental. Its API or implementation may change without warning.
We can construct a Series
with the specified dtype. The dtype string Int64
is a pandas ExtensionDtype
. Specifying a list or array using the traditional missing value
marker of np.nan
will infer to integer dtype. The display of the Series
will also use the NaN
to indicate missing values in string outputs. (GH 20700, GH 20747, GH 22441, GH 21789, GH 22346)
In [1]: s = pd.Series([1, 2, np.nan], dtype='Int64')
In [2]: s
Out[2]:
0 1
1 2
2 <NA>
Length: 3, dtype: Int64
Operations on these dtypes will propagate NaN
as other pandas operations.

Length: 3, dtype: object
In [14]: df.groupby('B').A.sum()
Out[14]:

Warning
The Integer NA support currently uses the capitalized dtype version, e.g. Int8
as compared to the traditional int8
. This may be changed at a future date.
See Nullable integer data type for more.
Accessing the values in a Series or Index#
Series.array
and Index.array
have been added for extracting the array backing a
Series
or Index
. (GH 19954, GH 23623)
In [15]: idx = pd.period_range('2000', periods=4)
In [16]: idx.array
Out[16]:
<PeriodArray>
['20000101', '20000102', '20000103', '20000104']
Length: 4, dtype: period[D]
In [17]: pd.Series(idx).array
Out[17]:
<PeriodArray>
['20000101', '20000102', '20000103', '20000104']
Length: 4, dtype: period[D]
Historically, this would have been done with series.values
, but with
.values
it was unclear whether the returned value would be the actual array,
some transformation of it, or one of pandas custom arrays (like
Categorical
). For example, with PeriodIndex
, .values
generates
a new ndarray of period objects each time.
In [18]: idx.values
Out[18]:
array([Period('20000101', 'D'), Period('20000102', 'D'),
Period('20000103', 'D'), Period('20000104', 'D')], dtype=object)
In [19]: id(idx.values)
Out[19]: 140340796173712
In [20]: id(idx.values)
Out[20]: 140339312500944
If you need an actual NumPy array, use Series.to_numpy()
or Index.to_numpy()
.
In [21]: idx.to_numpy()
Out[21]:
array([Period('20000101', 'D'), Period('20000102', 'D'),
Period('20000103', 'D'), Period('20000104', 'D')], dtype=object)
In [22]: pd.Series(idx).to_numpy()
Out[22]:
array([Period('20000101', 'D'), Period('20000102', 'D'),
Period('20000103', 'D'), Period('20000104', 'D')], dtype=object)
For Series and Indexes backed by normal NumPy arrays, Series.array
will return a
new arrays.PandasArray
, which is a thin (nocopy) wrapper around a
numpy.ndarray
. PandasArray
isn’t especially useful on its own,
but it does provide the same interface as any extension array defined in pandas or by
a thirdparty library.
In [23]: ser = pd.Series([1, 2, 3])
In [24]: ser.array
Out[24]:
<NumpyExtensionArray>
[1, 2, 3]
Length: 3, dtype: int64
In [25]: ser.to_numpy()
Out[25]: array([1, 2, 3])
We haven’t removed or deprecated Series.values
or DataFrame.values
, but we
highly recommend and using .array
or .to_numpy()
instead.
See Dtypes and Attributes and Underlying Data for more.
pandas.array
: a new toplevel method for creating arrays#
A new toplevel method array()
has been added for creating 1dimensional arrays (GH 22860).
This can be used to create any extension array, including
extension arrays registered by 3rd party libraries.
See the dtypes docs for more on extension arrays.
In [26]: pd.array([1, 2, np.nan], dtype='Int64')
Out[26]:
<IntegerArray>
[1, 2, <NA>]
Length: 3, dtype: Int64
In [27]: pd.array(['a', 'b', 'c'], dtype='category')
Out[27]:
['a', 'b', 'c']
Categories (3, object): ['a', 'b', 'c']
Passing data for which there isn’t dedicated extension type (e.g. float, integer, etc.)
will return a new arrays.PandasArray
, which is just a thin (nocopy)
wrapper around a numpy.ndarray
that satisfies the pandas extension array interface.
In [28]: pd.array([1, 2, 3])
Out[28]:
<IntegerArray>
[1, 2, 3]
Length: 3, dtype: Int64
On their own, a PandasArray
isn’t a very useful object.
But if you need write lowlevel code that works generically for any
ExtensionArray
, PandasArray
satisfies that need.
Notice that by default, if no dtype
is specified, the dtype of the returned
array is inferred from the data. In particular, note that the first example of
[1, 2, np.nan]
would have returned a floatingpoint array, since NaN
is a float.
In [29]: pd.array([1, 2, np.nan])
Out[29]:
<IntegerArray>
[1, 2, <NA>]
Length: 3, dtype: Int64
Storing Interval and Period data in Series and DataFrame#
Interval
and Period
data may now be stored in a Series
or DataFrame
, in addition to an
IntervalIndex
and PeriodIndex
like previously (GH 19453, GH 22862).
In [30]: ser = pd.Series(pd.interval_range(0, 5))
In [31]: ser
Out[31]:
0 (0, 1]
1 (1, 2]
2 (2, 3]
3 (3, 4]
4 (4, 5]
Length: 5, dtype: interval
In [32]: ser.dtype
Out[32]: interval[int64, right]
For periods:
In [33]: pser = pd.Series(pd.period_range("2000", freq="D", periods=5))
In [34]: pser
Out[34]:
0 20000101
1 20000102
2 20000103
3 20000104
4 20000105
Length: 5, dtype: period[D]
In [35]: pser.dtype
Out[35]: period[D]
Previously, these would be cast to a NumPy array with object dtype. In general,
this should result in better performance when storing an array of intervals or periods
in a Series
or column of a DataFrame
.
Use Series.array
to extract the underlying array of intervals or periods
from the Series
:
In [36]: ser.array
Out[36]:
<IntervalArray>
[(0, 1], (1, 2], (2, 3], (3, 4], (4, 5]]
Length: 5, dtype: interval[int64, right]
In [37]: pser.array
Out[37]:
<PeriodArray>
['20000101', '20000102', '20000103', '20000104', '20000105']
Length: 5, dtype: period[D]
These return an instance of arrays.IntervalArray
or arrays.PeriodArray
,
the new extension arrays that back interval and period data.
Warning
For backwards compatibility, Series.values
continues to return
a NumPy array of objects for Interval and Period data. We recommend
using Series.array
when you need the array of data stored in the
Series
, and Series.to_numpy()
when you know you need a NumPy array.
See Dtypes and Attributes and Underlying Data for more.
Joining with two multiindexes#
DataFrame.merge()
and DataFrame.join()
can now be used to join multiindexed Dataframe
instances on the overlapping index levels (GH 6360)
See the Merge, join, and concatenate documentation section.
In [38]: index_left = pd.MultiIndex.from_tuples([('K0', 'X0'), ('K0', 'X1'),
....: ('K1', 'X2')],
....: names=['key', 'X'])
....:
In [39]: left = pd.DataFrame({'A': ['A0', 'A1', 'A2'],
....: 'B': ['B0', 'B1', 'B2']}, index=index_left)
....:
In [40]: index_right = pd.MultiIndex.from_tuples([('K0', 'Y0'), ('K1', 'Y1'),
....: ('K2', 'Y2'), ('K2', 'Y3')],
....: names=['key', 'Y'])
....:
In [41]: right = pd.DataFrame({'C': ['C0', 'C1', 'C2', 'C3'],
....: 'D': ['D0', 'D1', 'D2', 'D3']}, index=index_right)
....:
In [42]: left.join(right)
Out[42]:
A B C D
key X Y
K0 X0 Y0 A0 B0 C0 D0
X1 Y0 A1 B1 C0 D0
K1 X2 Y1 A2 B2 C1 D1
[3 rows x 4 columns]
For earlier versions this can be done using the following.
In [43]: pd.merge(left.reset_index(), right.reset_index(),
....: on=['key'], how='inner').set_index(['key', 'X', 'Y'])
....:
Out[43]:
A B C D
key X Y
K0 X0 Y0 A0 B0 C0 D0
X1 Y0 A1 B1 C0 D0
K1 X2 Y1 A2 B2 C1 D1
[3 rows x 4 columns]
Function read_html
enhancements#
read_html()
previously ignored colspan
and rowspan
attributes.
Now it understands them, treating them as sequences of cells with the same
value. (GH 17054)
In [44]: result = pd.read_html(StringIO("""
....: <table>
....: <thead>
....: <tr>
....: <th>A</th><th>B</th><th>C</th>
....: </tr>
....: </thead>
....: <tbody>
....: <tr>
....: <td colspan="2">1</td><td>2</td>
....: </tr>
....: </tbody>
....: </table>"""))
....:
Previous behavior:
In [13]: result
Out [13]:
[ A B C
0 1 2 NaN]
New behavior:
In [45]: result
Out[45]:
[ A B C
0 1 1 2
[1 rows x 3 columns]]
New Styler.pipe()
method#
The Styler
class has gained a
pipe()
method. This provides a
convenient way to apply users’ predefined styling functions, and can help reduce
“boilerplate” when using DataFrame styling functionality repeatedly within a notebook. (GH 23229)
In [46]: df = pd.DataFrame({'N': [1250, 1500, 1750], 'X': [0.25, 0.35, 0.50]})
In [47]: def format_and_align(styler):
....: return (styler.format({'N': '{:,}', 'X': '{:.1%}'})
....: .set_properties(**{'textalign': 'right'}))
....:
In [48]: df.style.pipe(format_and_align).set_caption('Summary of results.')
Out[48]: <pandas.io.formats.style.Styler at 0x7fa3685e6ce0>
Similar methods already exist for other classes in pandas, including DataFrame.pipe()
,
GroupBy.pipe()
, and Resampler.pipe()
.
Renaming names in a MultiIndex#
DataFrame.rename_axis()
now supports index
and columns
arguments
and Series.rename_axis()
supports index
argument (GH 19978).
This change allows a dictionary to be passed so that some of the names
of a MultiIndex
can be changed.
Example:
In [49]: mi = pd.MultiIndex.from_product([list('AB'), list('CD'), list('EF')],
....: names=['AB', 'CD', 'EF'])
....:
In [50]: df = pd.DataFrame(list(range(len(mi))), index=mi, columns=['N'])
In [51]: df
Out[51]:
N
AB CD EF
A C E 0
F 1
D E 2
F 3
B C E 4
F 5
D E 6
F 7
[8 rows x 1 columns]
In [52]: df.rename_axis(index={'CD': 'New'})
Out[52]:
N
AB New EF
A C E 0
F 1
D E 2
F 3
B C E 4
F 5
D E 6
F 7
[8 rows x 1 columns]
See the Advanced documentation on renaming for more details.

Backwards incompatible API changes#
pandas 0.24.0 includes a number of API breaking changes.
Increased minimum versions for dependencies#
We have updated our minimum supported versions of dependencies (GH 21242, GH 18742, GH 23774, GH 24767). If installed, we now require:
Package 
Minimum Version 
Required 

numpy 
1.12.0 
X 
bottleneck 
1.2.0 

fastparquet 
0.2.1 

matplotlib 
2.0.0 

numexpr 
2.6.1 

pandasgbq 
0.8.0 

pyarrow 
0.9.0 

pytables 
3.4.2 

scipy 
0.18.1 

xlrd 
1.0.0 

pytest (dev) 
3.6 
Additionally we no longer depend on featherformat
for feather based storage
and replaced it with references to pyarrow
(GH 21639 and GH 23053).
os.linesep
is used for line_terminator
of DataFrame.to_csv
#
DataFrame.to_csv()
now uses os.linesep()
rather than '\n'
for the default line terminator (GH 20353).
This change only affects when running on Windows, where '\r\n'
was used for line terminator
even when '\n'
was passed in line_terminator
.
Previous behavior on Windows:
In [1]: data = pd.DataFrame({"string_with_lf": ["a\nbc"],
...: "string_with_crlf": ["a\r\nbc"]})
In [2]: # When passing file PATH to to_csv,
...: # line_terminator does not work, and csv is saved with '\r\n'.
...: # Also, this converts all '\n's in the data to '\r\n'.
...: data.to_csv("test.csv", index=False, line_terminator='\n')
In [3]: with open("test.csv", mode='rb') as f:
...: print(f.read())
Out[3]: b'string_with_lf,string_with_crlf\r\n"a\r\nbc","a\r\r\nbc"\r\n'
In [4]: # When passing file OBJECT with newline option to
...: # to_csv, line_terminator works.
...: with open("test2.csv", mode='w', newline='\n') as f:
...: data.to_csv(f, index=False, line_terminator='\n')
In [5]: with open("test2.csv", mode='rb') as f:
...: print(f.read())
Out[5]: b'string_with_lf,string_with_crlf\n"a\nbc","a\r\nbc"\n'
New behavior on Windows:
Passing line_terminator
explicitly, set the line terminator
to that character.
In [1]: data = pd.DataFrame({"string_with_lf": ["a\nbc"],
...: "string_with_crlf": ["a\r\nbc"]})
In [2]: data.to_csv("test.csv", index=False, line_terminator='\n')
In [3]: with open("test.csv", mode='rb') as f:
...: print(f.read())
Out[3]: b'string_with_lf,string_with_crlf\n"a\nbc","a\r\nbc"\n'
On Windows, the value of os.linesep
is '\r\n'
, so if line_terminator
is not
set, '\r\n'
is used for line terminator.
In [1]: data = pd.DataFrame({"string_with_lf": ["a\nbc"],
...: "string_with_crlf": ["a\r\nbc"]})
In [2]: data.to_csv("test.csv", index=False)
In [3]: with open("test.csv", mode='rb') as f:
...: print(f.read())
Out[3]: b'string_with_lf,string_with_crlf\r\n"a\nbc","a\r\nbc"\r\n'
For file objects, specifying newline
is not sufficient to set the line terminator.
You must pass in the line_terminator
explicitly, even in this case.
In [1]: data = pd.DataFrame({"string_with_lf": ["a\nbc"],
...: "string_with_crlf": ["a\r\nbc"]})
In [2]: with open("test2.csv", mode='w', newline='\n') as f:
...: data.to_csv(f, index=False)
In [3]: with open("test2.csv", mode='rb') as f:
...: print(f.read())
Out[3]: b'string_with_lf,string_with_crlf\r\n"a\nbc","a\r\nbc"\r\n'
Proper handling of np.nan

There was bug in read_excel()
and read_csv()
with the Python
engine, where missing values turned to 'nan'
with dtype=str
and
na_filter=True
. Now, these missing values are converted to the string
missing indicator, np.nan
. (GH 20377)
Previous behavior:
In [5]: data = 'a,b,c\n1,,3\n4,5,6'
In [6]: df = pd.read_csv(StringIO(data), engine='python', dtype=str, na_filter=True)
In [7]: df.loc[0, 'b']
Out[7]:
'nan'
New behavior:
In [53]: data = 'a,b,c\n1,,3\n4,5,6'
In [54]: df = pd.read_csv(StringIO(data), engine='python', dtype=str, na_filter=True)
In [55]: df.loc[0, 'b']
Out[55]: nan
Notice how we now instead output np.nan
itself instead of a stringified form of it.
Parsing datetime strings with timezone offsets#
Previously, parsing datetime strings with UTC offsets with to_datetime()
or DatetimeIndex
would automatically convert the datetime to UTC
without timezone localization. This is inconsistent from parsing the same
datetime string with Timestamp
which would preserve the UTC
offset in the tz
attribute. Now, to_datetime()
preserves the UTC
offset in the tz
attribute when all the datetime strings have the same
UTC offset (GH 17697, GH 11736, GH 22457)
Previous behavior:
In [2]: pd.to_datetime("20151118 15:30:00+05:30")

Out[57]: Timestamp('20151118 15:30:00+0530', tz='UTC+05:30')
Parsing datetime strings with the same UTC offset will preserve the UTC offset in the tz
In [58]: pd.to_datetime(["20151118 15:30:00+05:30"] * 2)
Out[58]: DatetimeIndex(['20151118 15:30:00+05:30', '20151118 15:30:00+05:30'], dtype='datetime64[ns, UTC+05:30]', freq=None)
Parsing datetime strings with different UTC offsets will now create an Index of
datetime.datetime
objects with different UTC offsets
In [59]: idx = pd.to_datetime(["20151118 15:30:00+05:30",
"20151118 16:30:00+06:30"])

In[62]: idx[1]
Out[62]: Timestamp('20151118 16:30:00+0630', tz='UTC+06:30')
Passing utc=True
will mimic the previous behavior but will correctly indicate
that the dates have been converted to UTC
In [59]: pd.to_datetime(["20151118 15:30:00+05:30",

Sparse data structure refactor#
SparseArray
, the array backing SparseSeries
and the columns in a SparseDataFrame
,
is now an extension array (GH 21978, GH 19056, GH 22835).
To conform to this interface and for consistency with the rest of pandas, some API breaking
changes were made:
SparseArray
is no longer a subclass ofnumpy.ndarray
. To convert aSparseArray
to a NumPy array, usenumpy.asarray()
.SparseArray.dtype
andSparseSeries.dtype
are now instances ofSparseDtype
, rather thannp.dtype
. Access the underlying dtype withSparseDtype.subtype
.numpy.asarray(sparse_array)
now returns a dense array with all the values, not just the nonfillvalue values (GH 14167)SparseArray.take
now matches the API ofpandas.api.extensions.ExtensionArray.take()
(GH 19506):The default value of
allow_fill
has changed fromFalse
toTrue
.The
out
andmode
parameters are now longer accepted (previously, this raised if they were specified).Passing a scalar for
indices
is no longer allowed.
The result of
concat()
with a mix of sparse and dense Series is a Series with sparse values, rather than aSparseSeries
.SparseDataFrame.combine
andDataFrame.combine_first
no longer supports combining a sparse column with a dense column while preserving the sparse subtype. The result will be an objectdtype SparseArray.Setting
SparseArray.fill_value
to a fill value with a different dtype is now allowed.DataFrame[column]
is now aSeries
with sparse values, rather than aSparseSeries
, when slicing a single column with sparse values (GH 23559).The result of
Series.where()
is now aSeries
with sparse values, like with other extension arrays (GH 24077)
Some new warnings are issued for operations that require or are likely to materialize a large dense array:
A
errors.PerformanceWarning
is issued when using fillna with amethod
, as a dense array is constructed to create the filled array. Filling with avalue
is the efficient way to fill a sparse array.A
errors.PerformanceWarning
is now issued when concatenating sparse Series with differing fill values. The fill value from the first sparse array continues to be used.
In addition to these API breaking changes, many Performance Improvements and Bug Fixes have been made.
Finally, a Series.sparse
accessor was added to provide sparsespecific methods like Series.sparse.from_coo()
.
In [66]: s = pd.Series([0, 0, 1, 1, 1], dtype='Sparse[int]')
In [67]: s.sparse.density
Out[67]: 0.6
get_dummies()
always returns a DataFrame#
Previously, when sparse=True
was passed to get_dummies()
, the return value could be either
a DataFrame
or a SparseDataFrame
, depending on whether all or a just a subset
of the columns were dummyencoded. Now, a DataFrame
is always returned (GH 24284).
Previous behavior
The first get_dummies()
returns a DataFrame
because the column A
is not dummy encoded. When just ["B", "C"]
are passed to get_dummies
,
then all the columns are dummyencoded, and a SparseDataFrame
was returned.
In [2]: df = pd.DataFrame({"A": [1, 2], "B": ['a', 'b'], "C": ['a', 'a']})
In [3]: type(pd.get_dummies(df, sparse=True))
Out[3]: pandas.core.frame.DataFrame
In [4]: type(pd.get_dummies(df[['B', 'C']], sparse=True))
Out[4]: pandas.core.sparse.frame.SparseDataFrame
New behavior
Now, the return type is consistently a DataFrame
.
In [68]: type(pd.get_dummies(df, sparse=True))
Out[68]: pandas.core.frame.DataFrame
In [69]: type(pd.get_dummies(df[['B', 'C']], sparse=True))
Out[69]: pandas.core.frame.DataFrame
Note
There’s no difference in memory usage between a SparseDataFrame
and a DataFrame
with sparse values. The memory usage will
be the same as in the previous version of pandas.

have been removed (GH 23118)Series.searchsorted()
, when supplied a scalar value to search for, now returns a scalar instead of an array (GH 23801).Categorical.searchsorted()
, when supplied a scalar value to search for, now returns a scalar instead of an array (GH 23466).Categorical.searchsorted()
now raises aKeyError
rather that aValueError
, if a searched for key is not found in its categories (GH 23466).Index.hasnans()
andSeries.hasnans()
now always return a python boolean. Previously, a python or a numpy boolean could be returned, depending on circumstances (GH 23294).The order of the arguments of
DataFrame.to_html()
andDataFrame.to_string()
is rearranged to be consistent with each other. (GH 23614)CategoricalIndex.reindex()
now raises aValueError
if the target index is nonunique and not equal to the current index. It previously only raised if the target index was not of a categorical dtype (GH 23963).Series.to_list()
andIndex.to_list()
are now aliases ofSeries.tolist
respectivelyIndex.tolist
(GH 8826)The result of
SparseSeries.unstack
is now aDataFrame
with sparse values, rather than aSparseDataFrame
(GH 24372).DatetimeIndex
andTimedeltaIndex
no longer ignore the dtype precision. Passing a nonnanosecond resolution dtype will raise aValueError
(GH 24753)
Extension type changes#
Equality and hashability
pandas now requires that extension dtypes be hashable (i.e. the respective
ExtensionDtype
objects; hashability is not a requirement for the values
of the corresponding ExtensionArray
). The base class implements
a default __eq__
and __hash__
. If you have a parametrized dtype, you should
update the ExtensionDtype._metadata
tuple to match the signature of your
__init__
method. See pandas.api.extensions.ExtensionDtype
for more (GH 22476).
New and changed methods
dropna()
has been added (GH 21185)repeat()
has been added (GH 24349)The
ExtensionArray
constructor,_from_sequence
now take the keyword argcopy=False
(GH 21185)pandas.api.extensions.ExtensionArray.shift()
added as part of the basicExtensionArray
interface (GH 22387).searchsorted()
has been added (GH 24350)Support for reduction operations such as
sum
,mean
via optin base class method override (GH 22762)ExtensionArray.isna()
is allowed to return anExtensionArray
(GH 22325).
Dtype changes
ExtensionDtype
has gained the ability to instantiate from string dtypes, e.g.decimal
would instantiate a registeredDecimalDtype
; furthermore theExtensionDtype
has gained the methodconstruct_array_type
(GH 21185)Added
ExtensionDtype._is_numeric
for controlling whether an extension dtype is considered numeric (GH 22290).Added
pandas.api.types.register_extension_dtype()
to register an extension type with pandas (GH 22664)Updated the
.type
attribute forPeriodDtype
,DatetimeTZDtype
, andIntervalDtype
to be instances of the dtype (Period
,Timestamp
, andInterval
respectively) (GH 22938)
Operator support
A Series
based on an ExtensionArray
now supports arithmetic and comparison
operators (GH 19577). There are two approaches for providing operator support for an ExtensionArray
:
Define each of the operators on your
ExtensionArray
subclass.Use an operator implementation from pandas that depends on operators that are already defined on the underlying elements (scalars) of the
ExtensionArray
.
See the ExtensionArray Operator Support documentation section for details on both ways of adding operator support.
Other changes
A default repr for
pandas.api.extensions.ExtensionArray
is now provided (GH 23601).ExtensionArray._formatting_values()
is deprecated. UseExtensionArray._formatter
instead. (GH 23601)An
ExtensionArray
with a boolean dtype now works correctly as a boolean indexer.pandas.api.types.is_bool_dtype()
now properly considers them boolean (GH 22326)
Bug fixes

works correctly withExtensionArray
inside ofSeries
(GH 20825)Series.combine()
with scalar argument now works for any function type (GH 21248)Series.astype()
andDataFrame.astype()
now dispatch toExtensionArray.astype()
(GH 21185).Slicing a single row of a
DataFrame
with multiple ExtensionArrays of the same type now preserves the dtype, rather than coercing to object (GH 22784)Bug when concatenating multiple
Series
with different extension dtypes not casting to object dtype (GH 22994)Series backed by an
ExtensionArray
now work withutil.hash_pandas_object()
(GH 23066)DataFrame.stack()
no longer converts to object dtype for DataFrames where each column has the same extension dtype. The output Series will have the same dtype as the columns (GH 23077).Series.unstack()
andDataFrame.unstack()
no longer convert extension arrays to objectdtype ndarrays. Each column in the outputDataFrame
will now have the same dtype as the input (GH 23077).Bug when grouping
Dataframe.groupby()
and aggregating onExtensionArray
it was not returning the actualExtensionArray
dtype (GH 23227).Bug in
pandas.merge()
when merging on an extension arraybacked column (GH 23020).
Deprecations#
MultiIndex.labels
has been deprecated and replaced byMultiIndex.codes
. The functionality is unchanged. The new name better reflects the natures of these codes and makes theMultiIndex
API more similar to the API forCategoricalIndex
(GH 13443). As a consequence, other uses of the namelabels
inMultiIndex
have also been deprecated and replaced withcodes
:You should initialize a
MultiIndex
instance using a parameter namedcodes

argument now defaults toTrue
. (GH 19715)Categorical.from_codes()
has deprecated providing float values for thecodes
argument. (GH 21767)pandas.read_table()
is deprecated. Instead, useread_csv()
passingsep='\t'
if necessary. This deprecation has been removed in 0.25.0. (GH 21948)Series.str.cat()
has deprecated using arbitrary listlikes within listlikes. A listlike container may still contain manySeries
,Index

, or alternatively, only scalar values. (GH 21950)FrozenNDArray.searchsorted()
has deprecated thev
parameter in favor ofvalue
(GH 14645)DatetimeIndex.shift()

. Usingn
throws a deprecation warning (GH 22458, GH 22912)The
fastpath
keyword of the different Index constructors is deprecated (GH 23110).Timestamp.tz_localize()

(GH 23919)Passing a string alias like
'datetime64[ns, UTC]'
as theunit
parameter toDatetimeTZDtype
is deprecated. UseDatetimeTZDtype.construct_from_string
instead (GH 23990).The
skipna
parameter ofinfer_dtype()
will switch toTrue
by default in a future version of pandas (GH 17066, GH 24050)In
Series.where()
with Categorical data, providing another
that is not present in the categories is deprecated. Convert the categorical to a different dtype or add theother
to the categories first (GH 24077).Series.clip_lower()
,Series.clip_upper()
,DataFrame.clip_lower()
andDataFrame.clip_upper()
are deprecated and will be removed in a future version. UseSeries.clip(lower=threshold)
,Series.clip(upper=threshold)

orSeries
directly. (GH 24751).Passing a dtype without a precision like
np.dtype('datetime64')
ortimedelta64
toIndex
,DatetimeIndex
andTimedeltaIndex
is now deprecated. Use the nanosecondprecision dtype instead (GH 24753).
Integer addition/subtraction with datetimes and timedeltas is deprecated#
In the past, users could—in some cases—add or subtract integers or integerdtype
arrays from Timestamp
, DatetimeIndex
and TimedeltaIndex
.
This usage is now deprecated. Instead add or subtract integer multiples of
the object’s freq
attribute (GH 21939, GH 23878).
Previous behavior:
In [5]: ts = pd.Timestamp('19940506 12:15:16', freq=pd.offsets.Hour())
In [6]: ts + 2
Out[6]: Timestamp('19940506 14:15:16', freq='H')

In [10]: dti + pd.Index([1, 2])
Out[10]: DatetimeIndex(['20010108', '20010122'], dtype='datetime64[ns]', freq=None)

Out[103]: Index([20010108 00:00:00, 20010122 00:00:00], dtype='object')
Passing integer data and a timezone to DatetimeIndex#
The behavior of DatetimeIndex
when passed integer data and
a timezone is changing in a future version of pandas. Previously, these
were interpreted as wall times in the desired timezone. In the future,
these will be interpreted as wall times in UTC, which are then converted
to the desired timezone (GH 24559).
The default behavior remains the same, but issues a warning:
In [3]: pd.DatetimeIndex([946684800000000000], tz="US/Central")
/bin/ipython:1: FutureWarning:
Passing integerdtype data and a timezone to DatetimeIndex. Integer values
will be interpreted differently in a future version of pandas. Previously,
these were viewed as datetime64[ns] values representing the wall time
*in the specified timezone*. In the future, these will be viewed as
datetime64[ns] values representing the wall time *in UTC*. This is similar
to a nanosecondprecision UNIX epoch. To accept the future behavior, use
pd.to_datetime(integer_data, utc=True).tz_convert(tz)
To keep the previous behavior, use
pd.to_datetime(integer_data).tz_localize(tz)
#!/bin/python3
Out[3]: DatetimeIndex(['20000101 00:00:0006:00'], dtype='datetime64[ns, US/Central]', freq=None)
As the warning message explains, opt in to the future behavior by specifying that the integer values are UTC, and then converting to the final timezone:
In [104]: pd.to_datetime([946684800000000000], utc=True).tz_convert('US/Central')
Out[104]: DatetimeIndex(['19991231 18:00:0006:00'], dtype='datetime64[ns, US/Central]', freq=None)
The old behavior can be retained with by localizing directly to the final timezone:
In [105]: pd.to_datetime([946684800000000000]).tz_localize('US/Central')
Out[105]: DatetimeIndex(['20000101 00:00:0006:00'], dtype='datetime64[ns, US/Central]', freq=None)
Converting timezoneaware Series and Index to NumPy arrays#
The conversion from a Series
or Index
with timezoneaware
datetime data will change to preserve timezones by default (GH 23569).
NumPy doesn’t have a dedicated dtype for timezoneaware datetimes.
In the past, converting a Series
or DatetimeIndex
with
timezoneaware datatimes would convert to a NumPy array by
converting the tzaware data to UTC
dropping the timezoneinfo
returning a
numpy.ndarray
withdatetime64[ns]
dtype
Future versions of pandas will preserve the timezone information by returning an
objectdtype NumPy array where each value is a Timestamp
with the correct
timezone attached
In [106]: ser = pd.Series(pd.date_range('2000', periods=2, tz="CET"))
In [107]: ser
Out[107]:
0 20000101 00:00:00+01:00
1 20000102 00:00:00+01:00
Length: 2, dtype: datetime64[ns, CET]
The default behavior remains the same, but issues a warning
In [8]: np.asarray(ser)
/bin/ipython:1: FutureWarning: Converting timezoneaware DatetimeArray to timezonenaive
ndarray with 'datetime64[ns]' dtype. In the future, this will return an ndarray
with 'object' dtype where each element is a 'pandas.Timestamp' with the correct 'tz'.
To accept the future behavior, pass 'dtype=object'.
To keep the old behavior, pass 'dtype="datetime64[ns]"'.
#!/bin/python3
Out[8]:

dtype='datetime64[ns]')
The previous or future behavior can be obtained, without any warnings, by specifying
the dtype
Previous behavior
In [108]: np.asarray(ser, dtype='datetime64[ns]')
Out[108]:
array(['19991231T23:00:00.000000000', '20000101T23:00:00.000000000'],

# New behavior
In [109]: np.asarray(ser, dtype=object)
Out[109]:
array([Timestamp('20000101 00:00:00+0100', tz='CET'),
Timestamp('20000102 00:00:00+0100', tz='CET')], dtype=object)
Or by using Series.to_numpy()
In [110]: ser.to_numpy()
Out[110]:
array([Timestamp('20000101 00:00:00+0100', tz='CET'),
Timestamp('20000102 00:00:00+0100', tz='CET')], dtype=object)

All the above applies to a DatetimeIndex
with tzaware values as well.
