# Test whether Two Data Frames are Identical in R (Example Code)

In this R programming tutorial you’ll learn how to compare two data frames and check if they are the same.

## Example Data

df_A <- data.frame(x = LETTERS[7:2], # Constructing first data set y = 15:10, z = 3:8) df_A # x y z # 1 G 15 3 # 2 F 14 4 # 3 E 13 5 # 4 D 12 6 # 5 C 11 7 # 6 B 10 8 |

df_A <- data.frame(x = LETTERS[7:2], # Constructing first data set y = 15:10, z = 3:8) df_A # x y z # 1 G 15 3 # 2 F 14 4 # 3 E 13 5 # 4 D 12 6 # 5 C 11 7 # 6 B 10 8

df_B <- data.frame(x = LETTERS[7:2], # Constructing second data set y = 15:10, z = 3:8) df_B # x y z # 1 G 15 3 # 2 F 14 4 # 3 E 13 5 # 4 D 12 6 # 5 C 11 7 # 6 B 10 8 |

df_B <- data.frame(x = LETTERS[7:2], # Constructing second data set y = 15:10, z = 3:8) df_B # x y z # 1 G 15 3 # 2 F 14 4 # 3 E 13 5 # 4 D 12 6 # 5 C 11 7 # 6 B 10 8

## Example: Comparing whether Two Data Frames are Identical in R

all.equal(df_A, df_B) # Test if data frames are the same # [1] TRUE |

all.equal(df_A, df_B) # Test if data frames are the same # [1] TRUE
