factor variable thal, with levels
fixed defect and
binary variable indicating the
absence of heart disease.
The use of a cost matrix is suggested for this dataset. It is worse to class patients with heart disease as patients without heart disease (cost = 5), than it is to class patients without heart disease as having heart disease (cost = 1).
The dataset has been taken from the UCI Repository Of Machine Learning Databases at
