# Which methods would you use in case of binary data? [closed]

The dataset is a full ranked binary dataset. Therefore, Y = 1 or 0and X's = 1 or 0. Y represents whether a car has an engine failure or not. X represents the features of the car, for example X1 is engine type A, X2 engine type B, X3 gear type etc. I want to know from your experience, which models work well on those type of datasets. I read somewhere, that LDA or KNNare not recommended, as well as SVM.

Which information criterion would you use for forward selection? AIC, BIC..?

The data looks like this

       Engine_A Engine_B Engine_C Color_R Color_B Color_G  Y_Failure
Car1     1         0        0        0       1       0         1
Car2     0         1        0        1       0       0         0
Car3     0         1        0        0       0       1         1


Would you factorize all variables X and Y?

• What is the goal of your analysis? Sample size? How many predictors? ... meanwhile, if you are interested in modeling the probability of $Y=1$, conditional on $x$, look into logistic regression ... Aug 7 '19 at 11:12
