Missing data analysis in practice

By: Raghunathan, Trivellore.
Series: Chapman &​ Hall/​CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics. Publisher: Boca Raton CRC Press 2016Description: xix, 210 p.ISBN: 9781482211924.Subject(s): Mathematical statistics | Mathematics - Applied | Mathematics - Probability and Statistics - GeneralDDC classification: 519.5 Summary: Missing Data Analysis in Practice provides practical methods for analyzing missing data along with the heuristic reasoning for understanding the theoretical underpinnings. Drawing on his 25 years of experience researching, teaching, and consulting in quantitative areas, the author presents both frequentist and Bayesian perspectives. He describes easy-to-implement approaches, the underlying assumptions, and practical means for assessing these assumptions. Actual and simulated data sets illustrate important concepts, with the data sets and codes available online. The book underscores the development of missing data methods and their adaptation to practical problems. It mainly focuses on the traditional missing data problem. The author also shows how to use the missing data framework in many other statistical problems, such as measurement error, finite population inference, disclosure limitation, combing information from multiple data sources, and causal inference.
