Concat does not work for sparse series #10536

Concatenating two sparse series does not return sparse data structures as expected:

In [1]: import pandas as pd

In [2]: ts = pd.Series([0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 0 ,0 ,0])

In [3]: sts = ts.to_sparse()

In [4]: print type(pd.concat([sts, sts], axis=0))
<class 'pandas.core.series.Series'>

In [5]: print type(pd.concat([sts, sts], axis=1))
<class 'pandas.core.frame.DataFrame'>

The above does work correctly for SparseDataFrames.

@artemyk artemyk changed the title from concat does not work for sparse series to Concat does not work for sparse series Jul 9, 2015

@jreback jreback added this to the Next Major Release milestone Jul 11, 2015
