I provide an introduction to using logistic regression for prediction (binary classification) using the Titanic data competition from www.Kaggle.com as an example. I use models to predict in missing data, estimate a logistic regression model on a training data set, and use the estimated model to predict survival on a test data set. The video covers just about everything you need to know to estimate, predict, and evaluate logistic regression models in R.
