class pandas.Timedelta

Represents a duration, the difference between two dates or times.

Timedelta is the pandas equivalent of python’s datetime.timedelta and is interchangeable with it in most cases.

value : Timedelta, timedelta, np.timedelta64, string, or integer
unit : str, optional

Denote the unit of the input, if input is an integer. Default ‘ns’. Possible values: {‘Y’, ‘M’, ‘W’, ‘D’, ‘days’, ‘day’, ‘hours’, hour’, ‘hr’, ‘h’, ‘m’, ‘minute’, ‘min’, ‘minutes’, ‘T’, ‘S’, ‘seconds’, ‘sec’, ‘second’, ‘ms’, ‘milliseconds’, ‘millisecond’, ‘milli’, ‘millis’, ‘L’, ‘us’, ‘microseconds’, ‘microsecond’, ‘micro’, ‘micros’, ‘U’, ‘ns’, ‘nanoseconds’, ‘nano’, ‘nanos’, ‘nanosecond’, ‘N’}


Available kwargs: {days, seconds, microseconds, milliseconds, minutes, hours, weeks}. Values for construction in compat with datetime.timedelta. Numpy ints and floats will be coerced to python ints and floats.


The .value attribute is always in ns.


asm8 Return a numpy timedelta64 array scalar view.
components Return a components namedtuple-like.
days Number of days.
delta Return the timedelta in nanoseconds (ns), for internal compatibility.
microseconds Number of microseconds (>= 0 and less than 1 second).
nanoseconds Return the number of nanoseconds (n), where 0 <= n < 1 microsecond.
resolution Return a string representing the lowest timedelta resolution.
resolution_string Return a string representing the lowest timedelta resolution.
seconds Number of seconds (>= 0 and less than 1 day).


ceil(self, freq) return a new Timedelta ceiled to this resolution
floor(self, freq) return a new Timedelta floored to this resolution
isoformat() Format Timedelta as ISO 8601 Duration like P[n]Y[n]M[n]DT[n]H[n]M[n]S, where the [n] s are replaced by the values.
round(self, freq) Round the Timedelta to the specified resolution
to_numpy() Convert the Timestamp to a NumPy timedelta64.
to_pytimedelta() Convert a pandas Timedelta object into a python timedelta object.
to_timedelta64() Return a numpy.timedelta64 object with ‘ns’ precision.
total_seconds() Total duration of timedelta in seconds (to ns precision).
view() Array view compatibility.
