Python Question

I have the following data which is recorded in seconds: http://pastebin.com/wBSJWYn2

I want to capture various summery statistics like the mean, variance, etc on it for 1 minute intervals. So I'm running these functions on

`sensor_data.rolling(window=1,freq="1MIN")`

- No output for incomplete minutes -- It doesn't given an output for minutes that don't have all 60 seconds. This is the case for the
`mean(), quantile(), sum()`

- No output at all. For certain functions like , I don't get any values at all. I really can't understand why this would be the case given that it was able to calculate the mean...
`var(), std(), kurt(), skew()`

Other functions seem to work without a problem:

`max(), median(), min()`

`sensor_data.head()`

x_acceleration y_acceleration z_acceleration heart_rate electrodermal_activity temperature

Answer

for starters, this will get you going.

```
sensor_data.groupby(pd.Grouper(level=0, freq='Min')).describe()
```

you can build a custom function:

```
def stats(df):
kurt = pd.DataFrame(df.kurt(), columns=['kurt']).T
skew = pd.DataFrame(df.skew(), columns=['skew']).T
var = pd.DataFrame(df.var(), columns=['var']).T
return pd.concat([df.describe(), var, skew, kurt])
```

then:

```
sensor_data.groupby(pd.Grouper(level=0, freq='Min')).apply(stats)
```
