# which of these 2 classification models is best

The difference between the two models is the label, which is slightly differently defined for the 2nd model. So for model 2 there are less data that fall in class 1.0 (87161 versus 155915).

Which of the two models would you prefer? how should I evaluate a higher f1 score for the separate classes?
