My data can have multiple events on a given date or NO events on a date. I take these events, get a count by date and plot them. However, when I plot them, my two series don't always match.
idx = pd.date_range(df['simpleDate'].min(), df['simpleDate'].max()) s = df.groupby(['simpleDate']).size()
In the above code idx becomes a range of say 30 dates. 09-01-2013 to 09-30-2013 However S may only have 25 or 26 days because no events happened for a given date. I then get an AssertionError as the sizes dont match when I try to plot:
fig, ax = plt.subplots() ax.bar(idx.to_pydatetime(), s, color='green')
What's the proper way to tackle this? Do I want to remove dates with no values from IDX or (which I'd rather do) is add to the series the missing date with a count of 0. I'd rather have a full graph of 30 days with 0 values. If this approach is right, any suggestions on how to get started? Do I need some sort of dynamic
Here's a snippet of S (
df.groupby(['simpleDate']).size() ), notice no entries for 04 and 05.
