The target variable, Claim, is a:

  • 1 if the building has at least a claim over the insured period.
  • 0 if the building doesn’t have a claim over the insured period.

The files for download are:

  • train_data.csv - is the dataset that you will use to train your model.
  • test_data.csv - is the dataset on which you will apply your model to.
  • sample_submission.csv - is an example of what your submission file should look like. The order of the rows does not matter, but the names of the "Customer Id" must be correct.
  • VariableDefinitions.csv - Definitions of variables in the train and test
