Machine Learning Task: Binary classification
This is an Adult database. The prediction task is to determine whether a person makes over 50K a year. Data extraction was done by Barry Becker from the 1994 Census database. Variables are all self-explanatory except __fnlwgt__. This is a proxy for the people's demographic background: "People with similar demographic characteristics should have similar weights." This similarity-statement is not relevant in all the different 51 states.
