# Protected attributes proxies

Protected attributes are the characteristics or features that by law cannot be discriminated against. It can include age, sex, race, color, sexual orientation, religion, country of origin, marital status, and many more.

Even when the protected attributes don’t appear in the data sets used for the ML model, they might still exist through proxies – attributes with statistical relation to protected attributes.
