I've taken my Series and coerced it to a datetime column of dtype=datetime64[ns] (though only need day resolution...not sure how to change).
import pandas as pd
df = pd.read_csv('somefile.csv')
column = df['date']
column = pd.to_datetime(column, coerce=True)
but plotting doesn't work:
*** TypeError: ufunc add cannot use operands with types dtype('<M8[ns]') and dtype('float64')
I'd like to plot a histogram that just shows the count of dates by week, month, or year.
Surely there is a way to do this in pandas?
