RRFC2 algorithm

1.Impose missing values under the mechanism of missing completely at random on all covariates of the training dataset.

2.Impute the missing values in a continuous variable by its minimum value and impute the missing values in a categorical variable by its mode value (Minimum-value /mode imputation).

3.Build one tree in random forests using the above imputed training dataset, and then use it to predict the binary outcomes in the original testing dataset.

4.Repeat 1 to 3 for `number.trees`

times.

`dat` |
A data frame containing both training and testing datasets |

`yvar` |
The column number of the binary outcome variable, a factor variable. The default value is set as ncol(dat) |

`tr` |
Row numbers of all training data |

`te` |
Row numbers of all testing data |

`mispct` |
Rate of missing data, ranging from 0 to 1 |

`number.trees` |
Number of trees used in roughened random forests |

A prediction matrix. Each column shows the predicted values by a single tree. Each row is sequentially associated with the observations in the testing dataset. Each cell value is either 0 or 1.
