Pandas Series: equals() function

Test Pandas objects contain the same elements

The equals() function is used to test whether two Pandas objects contain the same elements.

This function allows two Series or DataFrames to be compared against each other to see if they have the same shape and elements. NaNs in the same location are considered equal. The column headers do not need to have the same type, but the elements within the columns must be the same dtype.
