About

South Africa is divided into 4,392 wards. We will aggregate the target indicators (households with 5+ members and no on-premises water) and the other predictive variables from the census across all the households within each ward to create an aggregated value of each indicator per ward. Some wards are for training, the remainder are the test set. You may not use external data for this competition.
