Pandas is a special tool that allows us to perform complex manipulations of data effectively and efficiently. Inside pandas, we mostly deal with a dataset in the form of DataFrame. DataFrames are 2-dimensional data structures in pandas. DataFrames consist of rows, columns, and data.

Subtracting a year from a datetime column

Datetime is a library in python which is a collection of date and time. Inside Datetime, we can access date and time in any format, but usually, the date is present in the format of "yy-mm-dd", and the time is present in the format of "HH:MM:SS".

Suppose we are having a DataFrame with a column containing a date, we will create a new column in which we will insert a date by subtracting one year from its adjacent column value.

Let us understand with the help of an example,

Python code to subtract a year from a datetime column in pandas

# Importing pandas package
import pandas as pd

# Creating a dictionary
d = {'Date':['2001-12-07','2002-11-06','2003-10-05','2004-09-04','2005-08-03']}

# Creating a DataFrame
df = pd.DataFrame(d)

# Display Original DataFrames
print("Created DataFrame:\n",df,"\n")

# Converting date value from string to datetime value
df['Date'] = pd.to_datetime(df['Date'])

# Subtracting a year from old date
df['New Date'] = df['Date']-pd.DateOffset(years=1)

# Display modified DataFrame
print("Modified DataFrame:\n",df)


Example: Subtract a year from a datetime column
