  1. Legend: means that data on the ICF category were available and the ICF category was confirmed for the corresponding dataset as its ranks resulting from Random Forests and Group Lasso regression were among the top 50% in both regression methodologies. - means that data on the ICF category were available, but it was not confirmed based on the 50% cut-off criterion for the corresponding dataset. Space means that no data on the ICF category were available for the corresponding dataset. Empty lines mean that no ICF category could be confirmed by the corresponding combination of datasets for the corresponding WHS domain.
