This dataset contains information for a sample of 200 patients who were part of a larger study conducted in a hospital's Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Since an ICU often deals with serious, life-threatening cases, a key variable to study is patient survival, which is coded in the Survive variable as 1 if the patient lived to be discharged and 0 if the patient died.
