It has been split into training, validation and test (60-20-20). The current version contains the training and development set of the shared task with Gold Standard annotations.<br>\nIn future versions of the dataset, test and background sets will be released.</p>\n\n<p>For the subtask-1 (classification), annotations are distributed in a tab-separated file (TSV). The TSV format follows the format employed in SMM4H 2019 Task 2:<br>\ntweet_id&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;class<br>\n&nbsp;<br>\nFor the subtask-2 (Named Entity Recognition, profession detection), annotations are distributed in 2 formats: Brat standoff and TSV. See Brat webpage for more information about Brat standoff format ( The TSV format follows the format employed in SMM4H 2019 Task 2:<br>\ntweet_id&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;begin&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;end&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;type&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;extraction</p>\n\n<p>In addition, we provide a tokenized version of the dataset, for participant&#39;s convenience. It follows the BIO format (similar to CONLL). The files were generated with the script (included), which employs the es_core_news_sm-2.3.1 Spacy model for tokenization.</p>\n\n<p><br>\n<strong>Zip structure:</strong></p>\n\n<p>txt-files: folder with text files. One text file per tweet. One sub-directory per corpus split (train and valid).</p>\n\n<p>txt-files-english: folder with text files Machine Translated to English.</p>\n\n<p>subtask-1: One file per corpus split (train.tsv and valid.tsv).</p>\n\n<p>subtask-2:</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>brat: folder with annotations in Brat format.
