Here, I give a walkthrough of my submission to Kaggle’s famous Titanic Machine Learning competition. I achieved an accuracy of 82% with my random forest algorithm, placing me in the top 3% of teams.

Please view my RPubs document for my walkthrough. The raw code is found in a link at the bottom of the RPubs document.
