Python Pandas: Compute difference of differences between consecutive numbers of a given series
Python Pandas: Data Series Exercise-26 with Solution
Write a Pandas program to compute difference of differences between consecutive numbers of a given series.
Sample Solution :
Python Code :
import pandas as pd series1 = pd.Series([1, 3, 5, 8, 10, 11, 15]) print("Original Series:") print(series1) print("\nDifference of differences between consecutive numbers of the said series:") print(series1.diff().tolist()) print(series1.diff().diff().tolist())
Original Series: 0 1 1 3 2 5 3 8 4 10 5 11 6 15 dtype: int64 Difference of differences between consecutive numbers of the said series: [nan, 2.0, 2.0, 3.0, 2.0, 1.0, 4.0] [nan, nan, 0.0, 1.0, -1.0, -1.0, 3.0]
