Python Pandas – Check if two Dataframes are exactly same

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

The equals() function is used to check if two dataframes are exactly same. At first, let us create DataFrame1 with two columns −

dataFrame1 = pd.DataFrame(
   {
      "Car": ['BMW', 'Lexus', 'Audi', 'Mustang', 'Bentley', 'Jaguar'],
      "Units": [100, 150, 110, 80, 110, 90]
   }
)

Create DataFrame2 with two columns −

dataFrame2 = pd.DataFrame(
   {
      "Car": ['BMW', 'Lexus', 'Audi', 'Mustang', 'Mercedes', 'Jaguar'],
      "Reg_Price": [7000, 1500, 5000, 8000, 9000, 6000]

   }
)

To check for equality, use the equals() method −

dataFrame1.equals(dataFrame2)

Example

Following is the code −

import pandas as pd

# Create DataFrame1
dataFrame1 = pd.DataFrame(
   {
      "Car": ['BMW', 'Lexus', 'Audi', 'Mustang', 'Bentley', 'Jaguar'],
      "Units": [100, 150, 110, 80, 110, 90]
   }
)

print"DataFrame1 ...\n",dataFrame1

# Create DataFrame2
dataFrame2 = pd.DataFrame(
   {
      "Car": ['BMW', 'Lexus', 'Audi', 'Mustang', 'Mercedes', 'Jaguar'],
      "Reg_Price": [7000, 1500, 5000, 8000, 9000, 6000]

   }
)

print"\nDataFrame2 ...\n",dataFrame2

# check for equality
print"\nAre both the DataFrames equal? ",dataFrame1.equals(dataFrame2)

Output

This will produce the following output −

DataFrame1 ...
       Car   Units
0      BMW     100
1    Lexus     150
2     Audi     110
3  Mustang      80
4  Bentley     110
5   Jaguar      90

DataFrame2 ...
        Car   Reg_Price
0       BMW        7000
1     Lexus        1500
2      Audi        5000
3   Mustang        8000
4  Mercedes        9000 
5    Jaguar        6000

Are both the DataFrames equal? False
