Fix Python – What values are valid in Pandas ‘Freq’ tags?


Asked By – sundowner

I am new to Pandas, and am trying to use date_range. I came across all kinds of good things for freq, like BME and BMS and I would like to be able to quickly look up the proper strings to get what I want. Yesterday I found a nicely formatted table somewhere in the documentation, but the title of the table was so obtuse that I can not use search to find it again today.

What values are valid in Pandas ‘Freq’ tags?

Now we will see solution for issue: What values are valid in Pandas ‘Freq’ tags?


You can find it called Offset Aliases:

A number of string aliases are given to useful common time series frequencies. We will refer to these aliases as offset aliases.

SM       semi-month end frequency (15th and end of month)
