Contrasting Logistic Regression and Decision Trees

Shital Katkar explains cases when you might use logistic regression or decision trees for classification problems:

If your data is categorical, then Logistic Regression cannot handle pure categorical data (string format). Rather, you need to convert it into numerical data.

Each algorithm has its own uses and assumptions.
