# Downsampling Time Series Data from Minute to Hourly Frequency

## Pandas Resampling and Frequency Conversion: Exercise-5 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to downsample Time Series data from Minute to Hourly Frequency.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

``````# Import necessary libraries
import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
# Create a time series data with minute frequency
date_rng = pd.date_range(start='2023-01-01', end='2023-01-01 23:59', freq='T')
ts = pd.Series(np.random.randn(len(date_rng)), index=date_rng)
# Downsample the time series to hourly frequency
ts_hourly = ts.resample('H').sum()

# Display the downsampled time series
print(ts_hourly)
``````

Output:

```2023-01-01 00:00:00    -9.638825

```

Explanation:

• Import Pandas and NumPy libraries.
• Create a date range with minute frequency.
• Generate a random time series data with the created date range.
• Downsample the time series data to hourly frequency by summing the values.
• Print the downsampled time series data.
