I have a dataset of the lifespans (birth/death date) of about 100,000
people. I also have the birth dates of about 1,000,000 people who are
still alive. I also have other information for each of these people
including faculty,state,year graduated etc. I would like to do some
statistical analysis but since the data is factored i'm having trouble. I
looked into using the SVM package to train and then predict lifespans but
it assumes nonfactored data.

Any ideas?
