# Overview These datasets were created in conjunction with the dissertation "Predicting Controlled Vocabulary Based on Text and Citations: Case Studies in Medical Subject Headings in MEDLINE and Patents," by Adam Kehoe. The datasets consist of the following: * twin_not_abstract_matched_complete.tsv: a tab-delimited file consisting of pairs of MEDLINE articles with identical titles, authors and years of publication. This file contains the PMIDs of the duplicate publications, as well as their medical subject headings (MeSH) and three measures of their indexing consistency. * twin_abstract_matched_complete.tsv: the same as above, except that the MEDLINE articles also have matching abstracts. * mesh_training_data.csv: a comma-separated file containing the training data for the model discussed in the dissertation. * mesh_scores.tsv: a tab-delimited file containing a pairwise similarity score based on word embeddings, and MeSH hierarchy relationship. ## Duplicate MEDLINE Publications Both the twin_not_abstract_matched_complete.tsv and twin_abstract_matched_complete.tsv have the same structure. They have the following columns: 1. pmid_one: the PubMed unique identifier of the first paper 2. pmid_two: the PubMed unique identifier of the second paper 3. mesh_one: A list of medical subject headings (MeSH) from the first paper, delimited by the "|" character 4. mesh_two: a list of medical subject headings from the second paper, delimited by the "|" character 5. hoopers_consistency: The calculation of Hooper's consistency between the MeSH of the first and second paper 6. nonhierarchicalfree: a word embedding based consistency score described in the dissertation 7. hierarchicalfree: a word embedding based consistency score additionally limited by the MeSH hierarchy, described in the dissertation. ## MeSH Training Data The mesh_training_data.csv file contains the training data for the model discussed in the dissertation. It has the following columns: 1. pmid: the PubMed unique identifier of the paper 2. term: a candidate MeSH term 3. cit_count: the log of the frequency of the term in the citation candidate set 4. total_cit: the log of the total number the paper's citations 5. citr_count: the log of the frequency of the term in the citations of the paper's citations 6. total_citofcit: the log of the total number of the citations of the paper's citations 7. absim_count: the log of the frequency of the term in the AbSim candidate set 8. total_absim_count: the log of the total number of AbSim records for the paper 9. absimr_count: the log of the frequency of the term in the citations of the AbSim records 10. total_absimr_count: the log of the total number of citations of the AbSim record 11. log_medline_frequency: the log of the frequency of the candidate term in MEDLINE. 12. relevance: a binary indicator (True/False) if the candidate term was assigned to the target paper ## Cosine Similarity The mesh_scores.tsv file contains a pairwise list of all MeSH terms including their cosine similarity based on the word embedding described in the dissertation. Because the MeSH hierarchy is also used in many of the evaluation measures, the relationship of the term pair is also included. It has the following columns: 1. mesh_one: a string of the first MeSH heading. 2. mesh_two: a string of the second MeSH heading. 3. cosine_similarity: the cosine similarity between the terms 4. relationship_type: a string identifying the relationship type, consisting of none, parent/child, sibling, ancestor and direct (terms are identical, i.e. a direct hierarchy match). The mesh_model.bin file contains a binary word2vec C format file containing the MeSH term embeddings. It was generated using version 3.7.2 of the Python gensim library (https://radimrehurek.com/gensim/). For an example of how to load the model file, see https://radimrehurek.com/gensim/models/word2vec.html#usage-examples, specifically the directions for loading the "word2vec C format."

A complete building coverage area dataset (i.e. area occupied by building structures, excluding other built surfaces such as roads, parking lots, and public parks) at the level of census block groups for the contiguous United States (CONUS). The dataset was assembled based on an ensemble prediction of nonlinear hierarchical models to account for spatial heterogeneities in the distribution of built surfaces across different urban communities. Percentage of impervious land and housing density were used as predictors of the estimated area of buildings and cross-validation results showed that the product estimated area represented by buildings with a mean error of 0.049 %.

Sixty undergraduate STEM lecture classes were observed across 14 departments at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2015 and 2016. We selected the classes to observe using purposive sampling techniques with the objectives of (1) collecting classroom observations that were representative of the STEM courses offered; (2) conducting observations on non-test, typical class days; and (3) comparing these classroom observations using the Class Observation Protocol for Undergraduate STEM (COPUS) to record the presence and frequency of active learning practices utilized by Community of Practice (CoP) and non-CoP instructors. Decimal values are the result of combined observations. All COPUS codes listed are from Smith (2013) "The Classroom Observation Protocol for Undergraduate STEM (COPUS): A New Instrument to Characterize STEM Classroom Practices" paper. For more information on the data collection process, see "Evidence that communities of practice are associated with active learning in large STEM lectures" by Tomkin et. al.

The data are provided to illustrate methods in evaluating systematic transactional data reuse in machine learning. A library account-based recommender system was developed using machine learning processing over transactional data of 383,828 transactions (or check-outs) sourced from a large multi-unit research library. The machine learning process utilized the FP-growth algorithm over the subject metadata associated with physical items that were checked-out together in the library. The purpose of this research is to evaluate the results of systematic transactional data reuse in machine learning. The analysis herein contains a large-scale network visualization of 180,441 subject association rules and corresponding node metrics.
