Extracting statistics from time series data

One of the main reasons that we want to analyze time series data is to extract interesting statistics from it. This provides a lot of information regarding the nature of the data. In this recipe, we will take a look at how to extract these stats.

How to do it…

  1. Create a new Python file, and import the following packages:
    import numpy as np
    import pandas as pd
    import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
    from convert_to_timeseries import convert_data_to_timeseries
  2. We will use the same text file that we used in the previous recipes for analysis:
    # Input file containing data
    input_file = 'data_timeseries.txt'
  3. Load both the data columns (third and fourth columns):
    # Load data data1 = convert_data_to_timeseries(input_file, 2) ...
