This is an artificial data set similar (but not exactly equal! [*]) to the one described in Breiman *et al.* (1984,
p.238). The cases are generated using the following method:

Generate the values of the 10 attributes independently using the following
probabilities:_{
}

Obtain
the value of the target variable *Y* using the rule:_{

[*] - Thanks to Nitin Indurkhya to pointing out that the data set I'm using it is not exactly equal to the one on the CART book. The later uses a gaussian error component with variance 2, while I'm using a variance of 1.
