Clarification about the data - Generation of the m1-m6 targets

Hi @Zindi!

Please, I would like to get more clarification about how the target variable has been generated?

I found some inconsistenty with certain contracts. For example, the contract with id ID_09ED73T

has data for months number 4, 5, 8, 12 of 2020 and 1, 2, 3,4 of 2021.

We are currently in June. How is it possible that the m1-m6 target values in this case could be for the upcoming months (5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 of 2021)? Did those consumers pay in advance or is there a mistake?

Hello, the hackathon data was rigged for several reasons. The most recent contract payments were imputed with values to somehow mimic the future behavior of a given customer.
