# pyspark.sql.functions.lag¶

pyspark.sql.functions.lag(col: ColumnOrName, offset: int = 1, default: Optional[Any] = None) → pyspark.sql.column.Column

Window function: returns the value that is offset rows before the current row, and default if there is less than offset rows before the current row. For example, an offset of one will return the previous row at any given point in the window partition.
