CLS are the the labels of a MTS versus ITS Bayesian classification showing two main groups of low quota ('1') and high quota ('2') municipalities. Additionally, outliers are manually classified into two separated groups called sponsors ('3') and promoted ('4'). In the Bayesian Classification non classified data have the label '0'. If a 'AGS' code of a 'PLZ' was unclear than the label is 'NaN'.
