Python | Pandas TimedeltaIndex.identical
  • Last Updated : 28 Dec, 2018

Python is a great language for doing data analysis, primarily because of the fantastic ecosystem of data-centric python packages. Pandas is one of those packages and makes importing and analyzing data much easier.

Pandas TimedeltaIndex.identical() function determines if two Index objects contain the same elements. If the two objects under consideration contain same elements the function return True else the function return False.

Note : It is similar to equals, but check that other comparable attributes are also equal.

Syntax : TimedeltaIndex.identical(other)

Parameters :
other : other object



Return : boolean value

Example #1: Use TimedeltaIndex.identical() function to check if the elements contained in the two given TimedeltaIndex objects are identical or not.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the first TimedeltaIndex object
tidx1 = pd.TimedeltaIndex(start ='1 days 06:05:01.000030', periods = 5,
                                              freq ='D', name ='Koala')
  
# Create the second TimedeltaIndex object
tidx2 = pd.TimedeltaIndex(start ='1 days 06:05:01.000030', periods = 5,
                                             freq ='D', name ='Koala')
  
# Print the first and second TimedeltaIndex object
print(tidx1, '\n', tidx2)

Output :



Now we will use the TimedeltaIndex.identical() function to check if the values contained in tidx1 and tidx2 are identical or not.




# find if the elements are identical in tidx1 and tidx2
tidx1.identical(tidx2)

Output :

As we can see in the output, the TimedeltaIndex.identical() function has returned True indicating that both the objects are identical to each other.
 
Example #2: Use TimedeltaIndex.identical() function to check if the elements contained in the two given TimedeltaIndex objects are identical or not.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the TimedeltaIndex object
tidx1 = pd.TimedeltaIndex(data =['1 days 02:00:00', '1 days 06:05:01.000030'
                                 '1 days 02:00:00', '1 days 02:00:00',
                                           '21 days 06:15:01.000030'])
  
# Create the second TimedeltaIndex object
tidx2 = pd.TimedeltaIndex(data =['06:05:01.000030', '+23:59:59.999999'
                          '22 day 2 min 3us 10ns', '+12:19:59.999999'])
  
# Print the first and second TimedeltaIndex object
print(tidx1, '\n', tidx2)

Output :


Now we will use the TimedeltaIndex.identical() function to check if the values contained in tidx1 and tidx2 are same or not.




# find if the elements are identical in tidx1 and tidx2
tidx.identical(tidx2)

Output :

As we can see in the output, the TimedeltaIndex.identical() function has returned False indicating that both the objects are not identical to each other.
