Hello everyone,

I've just started using VA and I'd like to make apply the logistic regression I've built on a training sample to a testing one on which I want to make predictions. Let me be clearer:



The data relates to a fictional e-commerce site. My interest is to figure out the probability that a customer may complete a purchase based on a series of observed variables. 


Training sample

Dependent variable: takes the values of 0/1 and indicates whether a customer makes (or not) a purchase

Independent variables: they are a series of binary variables indicating certain actions that a customer may perform (e.g., "add to cart"; "check shipping details"; ...)


Sample on which I need to make predictions

The testing sample contains the same information of the training one but the dependent variable which I need to predict.


As of now, I've already run the regression, using partition to train-test the regression using the training sample. The next step would be to apply the results obtained from the regression on the sample on which I need to make predictions to obtain purchase predictions. 


Hope everything is clear. Pardon me in advance for my "noviceness"
