This paper presents a comparative evaluation of popular multi-label classification methods on several multi-label problems from different domains. The methods include multi-label k-nearest neighbor, binary relevance, label power set, random k-label set ensemble learning, calibrated label ranking, hierarchy of multi-label classifiers and triple random ensemble multi-label classification algorithms. These multi-label learning algorithms are evaluated using several widely used MLC evaluation metrics. The evaluation results show that for each multi-label classification problem a particular MLC method can be recommended. The multi-label evaluation datasets used in this study are related to scene images, multimedia video frames, diagnostic medical report, email messages, emotional music data, biological genes and multi-structural proteins categorization.
