# Pandas: Difference between two dates or times

## Pandas Time Series: Exercise-4 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to print the day after and before a specified date. Also print the days between two given dates.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

``````import pandas as pd
import datetime
from datetime import datetime, date
today = datetime(2012, 10, 30)
print("Current date:", today)
tomorrow = today + pd.Timedelta(days=1)
print("Tomorrow:", tomorrow)
yesterday = today - pd.Timedelta(days=1)
print("Yesterday:", yesterday)
date1 = datetime(2016, 8, 2)
date2 = datetime(2016, 7, 19)
print("\nDifference between two dates: ",(date1 - date2))
``````

Sample Output:

```Current date: 2012-10-30 00:00:00
Tomorrow: 2012-10-31 00:00:00
Yesterday: 2012-10-29 00:00:00
