The goal of this section is to quickly review all of the techniques learnt in the latter half of the book. Towards this, a dataset has been selected where we have ten variables, including the output. Low birth weight is a serious concern, and it needs to be understood as a factor of many other variables. If the weight of a child at birth is lesser than 2500 grams, it is considered as a low birth weight. This problem has been studied in Chapter 19 of Tattar, et. al. (2013). The following table gives a description of the variables. Since the dataset may be studied as a regression problem (variable
BWT) as well as a classification problem (
LOW), you can choose any path(s) that you deem fit. Let the final action begin.
