This *intermediate* level data set provides health examination data among 303 patients who presented with chest pain and might have been suffering from heart disease. The data set has 14 attributes including patients' age, gender, blood pressure, cholesterol level, and their heart disease status indicating whether the diagnosed patient were found to have a heart disease or not. This data set is recommended for learning and practicing your skills in **classification modelling techniques**. Feel free to do **exploratory data analysis** and **data visualization** on the data set. The Following data dictionary gives more details on this data set:
