This *intermediate* level data set has 345 rows and 7 columns, where the 7th column is not a variable but just a train/test selector. The headers have to be manually placed in the data set.
The dataset does not contain any variable representing presence or absence of a liver disorder.
The first five columns are integer-valued and represent the result of various blood tests which may be of use in diagnosing alcohol-related liver disorders. The next, x6,  is real-valued and represents the number of alcoholic drinks (equivalent to half pints of beer) taken per day by the subject, selfreported 

This data set is recommended for learning and practicing your skills in **exploratory data analysis**, **data visualization**, **regression**, **classification** and **clustering** modelling techniques.
Feel free to explore the data set with multiple **supervised** and **unsupervised** learning techniques.
