                 tools to derive valuable information regarding their
                 subscribers. A key objective is to reduce churn rate
                 among subscribers. The mobile operator needs to know in
                 advance which subscribers are at risk of becoming
                 churners. This problem is solved with classification
                 algorithms having as input data derived from the large
                 volumes of usage details recorded. For certain
                 categories of subscribers, available data is limited to
                 call details records. Using this primary data, a
                 dataset is created to be conveniently used by a
                 classification algorithm. Classification quality using
                 this initial dataset is improved by a proposed method
                 for dataset decoration. Additional attributes are
                 derived from the initial dataset through generation,
                 based on gene expression programming. Classification
                 results obtained using the decorated dataset show that
                 the derived attributes are relevant for the studied
