Project Description

This data was extracted from the census bureau database found at:
Donor: Ronny Kohavi and Barry Becker,
            Data Mining and Visualization
            Silicon Graphics.
            e-mail: for questions.
Split into train-test using MLC++ GenCVFiles (2/3, 1/3 random).
48842 instances, mix of continuous and discrete    (train=32561, test=16281)
45222 if instances with unknown values are removed (train=30162, test=15060)
Duplicate or conflicting instances : 6
Class probabilities for adult.all file
Probability for the label '>50K'  : 23.93% / 24.78% (without unknowns)
Probability for the label '<=50K' : 76.07% / 75.22% (without unknowns)

Extraction was done by Barry Becker from the 1994 Census database.  
A set of reasonably clean records was extracted using the following conditions:
   ((AAGE>16) && (AGI>100) && (AFNLWGT>1)&& (HRSWK>0))
Prediction task is to determine whether a person makes over 50K a year.
