dask.dataframe.Series.isin

Series.isin(values)[source]

Whether elements in Series are contained in values.

This docstring was copied from pandas.core.series.Series.isin.

Some inconsistencies with the Dask version may exist.

Return a boolean Series showing whether each element in the Series matches an element in the passed sequence of values exactly.

Parameters
valuesset or list-like

The sequence of values to test. Passing in a single string will raise a TypeError. Instead, turn a single string into a list of one element.

Returns
Series

Series of booleans indicating if each element is in values.

Raises
TypeError
  • If values is a string

Equivalent method on DataFrame.

Examples

>>> s = pd.Series(['lama', 'cow', 'lama', 'beetle', 'lama',  
...                'hippo'], name='animal')
>>> s.isin(['cow', 'lama'])  
0     True
1     True
2     True
3    False
4     True
5    False
Name: animal, dtype: bool

Passing a single string as s.isin('lama') will raise an error. Use a list of one element instead:

>>> s.isin(['lama'])  
0     True
1    False
2     True
3    False
4     True
5    False
Name: animal, dtype: bool

Strings and integers are distinct and are therefore not comparable:

>>> pd.Series([1]).isin(['1'])  
0    False
dtype: bool
>>> pd.Series([1.1]).isin(['1.1'])  
0    False
dtype: bool
