Objective: Using Logistic Regression to handle a binary outcome.
 Given the prostate cancer dataset, in which biopsy results are given for 97 men: • 
You are to predict tumor spread in this dataset of 97 men who had undergone a biopsy. • 
The measures to be used for prediction are: age, lbph, lcp, gleason, and lpsa. 
This implies that binary dependent variable of lcavol will be the outcome variable. 
We start by loading the appropriate libraries in R: ROCR, ggplot2, and aod packages as follows: 
> install.packages(“ROCR”) 
> install.packages(“ggplot2”)
 > install.packages(“aod”) 
> library(ROCR) 
> library(ggplot2)
 > library(aod)
 Next, we load the csv file and check the statistical properties of the csv File as follow: 
> setwd(“C:/RData”) # your working directory > tumor <- read.csv(“prostate.csv”) # loading the file > str(tumor)
 # check the properties of the file . . . continue from here!
