This data set is intended to be used with association rules algorithms like apriori and eclat. It contains records on 20,000 users of the Audioscrobbler plugin, which tracked what music users listened to. This data set consists of records for 20,000 unique users. Each record contains a userid and an artist name, and indicates that the user listened to the artist at least once.
