pandas is a Python module that provides NumPy-based data structures and statistical tools for common time series and cross-sectional data sets. It is intended to accomplish the following:
* Simplify working with possibly labeled 1, 2, and 3 dimensional heterogeneous data sets commonly found in statistics, finance, and econometrics.
* Provide IO utilities for getting data in and out of pandas
* Implement common statistical models with a convenient interface, handling missing data and other common problems associated with messy statistical data sets
