Hey,

When I was trying to use lift to find rules/patterns for associated attributes, it 
wouldn’t have income bracket on the right hand side. However if I used car = True and 
tried to find the confidence, I would see income bracket on the right hand side. My 
question is that for step 1, ‘association rule mining’, can we just use confidence to 
justify the interestingness of the rule and why we chose it? Or is there another way 
to get lift to work? 


As well as, when I used car = True and tried to find the confidence, I would see 
income bracket on the right hand side, but it only happens to be <=50K. Should I 
change the min lower bound and upper bound or would there be a way to combat this?

Thanks
