Problem description

National survey lots of missing values. In particular the response has 82% missingness and explanatory variables range from almost complete to around the same level of missingness. How can we impute the missing values?

Consulting response


  • How was the data gathered? Simple random sample? Stratified?
  • Why are you interested in doing imputation?


  • 82% seems like a lot of missingness, especially in the response
  • The client will likely need to get comfortable with missing data approaches.
