Heterogeneous Target Variable Simplification[edit]

Control

Document and assess whether the Target Feature is a simplification of, or contains a subset of, true Target(s) of Interest. If true, consider refining Product Definitions, recovering the heterogeneity, or failing that, take measures to mitigate and review this as much as is reasonably practical.


Aim

Idem Section 11.3.1-2; and to (a) detect and control for risks of generalization and spurious correlation creation.
