Pandas Datetime: Get the average mean of the UFO sighting was reported
Pandas Datetime: Exercise-17 with Solution
Write a Pandas program to get the average mean of the UFO (unidentified flying object) sighting was reported.
import pandas as pd #Source: https://bit.ly/32kGinQ df = pd.read_csv(r'ufo.csv') df['date_documented'] = df['date_documented'].astype('datetime64[ns]') print("Original Dataframe:") print(df.head()) # Add a new column instance, this adds a value to each instance of ufo sighting df['instance'] = 1 # set index to time, this makes df a time series df and then you can apply pandas time series functions. df.set_index(df['date_documented'], drop=True, inplace=True) # create another df by resampling the original df and counting the instance column by Month ('M' is resample by month) ufo2 = pd.DataFrame(df['instance'].resample('M').count()) # just to find month of resampled observation ufo2['date_documented'] = pd.to_datetime(ufo2.index.values) ufo2['month'] = ufo2['date_documented'].apply(lambda x: x.month) print("Average mean of the UFO (unidentified flying object) sighting was reported:") print(ufo2.groupby(by='month').mean())
