# pandas.Series.slice_shift¶

Series.slice_shift(periods=1, axis=0)[source]

Equivalent to shift without copying data. The shifted data will not include the dropped periods and the shifted axis will be smaller than the original.

Deprecated since version 1.2.0: slice_shift is deprecated, use DataFrame/Series.shift instead.

Parameters
periodsint

Number of periods to move, can be positive or negative.

Returns
shiftedsame type as caller

Notes

While the slice_shift is faster than shift, you may pay for it later during alignment.
