# Titanic Survivor Prediction

Posted by davser on Tue, 10 Mar 2020 03:20:16 +0100

On April 15, 1912, during its first voyage, the Titanic sank after hitting an iceberg, killing 1502 of 2224 passengers and crew members.The tragedy stirred up the international community.One of the reasons for the shipwreck was that there were not enough lifeboats for the passengers and crew.Although there was some luck in surviving this disaster, some people are more likely to survive than others, such as women, children and the upper classes.

## 1. Data Description survival - survival (0 = survival, 1 = Death)
pclass - Ticket type (1 = first class, 2 = second class, 3 = third class)
sex - Gender
Age-age
Number of siblings on the sibsp-Titanic
parch-Titanic is good at the number of parents or children of this person
ticket - ticket number
Fare - Passenger fare
Cabin - cabin number
embarked - Port of departure (C = Cherbourg, Q = Queenstown, S = Southampton)
boat - lifeboat number (if survived)
Body - human number (if in distress and the body is found)
home.dest - Departure to destination

## 2. Data analysis

### 2.1 Survival Analysis Calculations show that only about 38% of the passengers survived, and the tragedy occurred because the Titanic did not carry enough lifeboats, only 20, which was not enough for 1317 passengers and 885 crew members.

### 2.1 Class Status Analysis We can see that first-class has a 62% chance of survival for passengers, compared with third-class with a 25.5% chance of survival. The more luxurious the cabin, the older the passengers are, and the first-class fare is significantly higher than second-class and third-class fares.

### 2.2 Class and Gender Analysis From the above analysis, we can see that people tend to evacuate women and children first when the tragedy happens.In all strata, women are more likely to survive than men. From the analysis of the chart above, it can be seen that the likelihood of children surviving the tragedy was relatively high.

## 3. Data Processing

Before building a machine learning model, we need to delete the fill-in missing values and divide the dataset into training and test sets.

### 3.1 Missing Value Handling

#### 3.1.1 Delete missing data by column

Because boat, cabin, body are missing severely and can not provide enough information for subsequent analysis, delete the three fields boat, cabin, body #### 3.1.2 Delete missing data by row

Because age also has a big impact on whether passengers can live or not, we chose to delete the missing part of the data in the age field. ### 3.2 Encoding Conversion

Both sex and embarked are string values corresponding to categories (for example, sex has two values, male and female), so we can convert category strings to numeric data by LabelEncoder, such as converting "male" and "female" to 0 and 1, respectively.The name, ticket, home.dest fields cannot be coded into numeric data, so we remove them from the dataset. ## 4 Machine Learning

### 4.1 Simple predictions for machine learning  ### 4.2 K Fold Cross Validation Different dataset selections also result in different predictions.The average prediction accuracy of the above decision tree models is 79.61%, which can vary by about 2% depending on the data.

### 4.3 Feature Selection

We can also use the random forest algorithm to get the weights of different features in the final result prediction ### 4.4 Comparison of Multiple Models By comparing the figures above, we can see that the stochastic forest algorithm performs well in the current data prediction, with an optimal value of more than 86%.
