#' It includes a variable indicating whether a person did  survive the sinking of the RMS
#' Titanic on April 15, 1912.
#'
#' This dataset was copied from the \code{stablelearner} package and went through few variable
#' transformations. Levels in \code{embarked} was replaced with full names, \code{sibsp}, \code{parch} and \code{fare}
#' were converted to numerical variables and values for crew were replaced with 0.
#' If you use this dataset please cite the original package.
#'
#' From \code{stablelearner}: The website \url{https://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org} offers detailed  information about passengers and crew
#' members on the RMS Titanic. According to the website 1317 passengers and 890 crew member were abord.
#' 8 musicians and 9 employees of the shipyard company are listed as passengers, but travelled with a

#' \item parch an ordered factor specifying the number of parents/children aboard; adopted from Vanderbild data set (see below).
#' \item survived a factor with two levels (\code{no} and \code{yes}) specifying whether the person has survived the sinking.
#' }

#' NOTE: The \code{titanic_imputed} dataset use following imputation rules.
#' \itemize{
#' \item Missing `age` is replaced with the mean of the observed ones, i.e., 30.
#' \item For sibsp and parch, missing values are replaced by the most frequently observed value, i.e., 0.
#' \item For fare, mean fare for a given class is used, i.e., 0 pounds for crew, 89 pounds for the 1st, 22 pounds for the 2nd, and 13 pounds for the 3rd class.
