dask.dataframe.Series.last

Series.last(offset)

Select final periods of time series data based on a date offset.

This docstring was copied from pandas.core.frame.DataFrame.last.

Some inconsistencies with the Dask version may exist.

For a DataFrame with a sorted DatetimeIndex, this function selects the last few rows based on a date offset.

Parameters
offsetstr, DateOffset, dateutil.relativedelta

The offset length of the data that will be selected. For instance, ‘3D’ will display all the rows having their index within the last 3 days.

Returns
Series or DataFrame

A subset of the caller.

Raises
TypeError

If the index is not a DatetimeIndex

Examples

>>> i = pd.date_range('2018-04-09', periods=4, freq='2D')  
>>> ts = pd.DataFrame({'A': [1, 2, 3, 4]}, index=i)  
>>> ts  
            A
2018-04-09  1
2018-04-11  2
2018-04-13  3
2018-04-15  4

Get the rows for the last 3 days:

>>> ts.last('3D')  
            A
2018-04-13  3
2018-04-15  4

Notice the data for 3 last calendar days were returned, not the last 3 observed days in the dataset, and therefore data for 2018-04-11 was not returned.
