Re: Churn Prediction variables for post paid data

Hi Sarbarup,

From a competition I did not do too well at, these were the predictors:


  • account length
  • international plan
  • voice mail plan
  • number of voice mail messages
  • total day minutes used
  • day calls made
  • total day charge
  • total evening minutes
  • total evening calls
  • total evening charge
  • total night minutes
  • total night calls
  • total night charge
  • total international minutes used
  • total international calls made
  • total international charge
  • number customer service calls made
