Details

The data set PimaIndiansDiabetes2 contains a corrected version of the original data set. While the UCI repository index claims that there are no missing values, closer inspection of the data shows several physical impossibilities, e.g., blood pressure or body mass index of 0. In PimaIndiansDiabetes2, all zero values of glucose, pressure, triceps, insulin and mass have been set to NA, see also Wahba et al (1995) and Ripley (1996).
