This is the 2018 Political Analysis in-house replication of Muchlinski, Siroky, He and Kocher (2016). This work, “Comparing Random Forest with Logistic Regression for Predicting Class-Imbalanced Civil War Onset Data,” was published in Political Analysis in Volume 24, Issue 1 in 2016. It was accompanied by
material as required by the journal. While this material was checkedupon submission in 2015, recent replication efforts show that it does not support the claims made by MSHK.
