Statistical research of knowledge units with lacking values is a pervasive challenge for which common tools are of restricted worth. the 1st version of Statistical research with lacking facts has been a typical reference on missing-data equipment. Now, reflecting wide advancements in Bayesian tools for simulating posterior distributions, this moment variation by way of stated specialists at the topic deals a completely up to date, reorganized survey of present method for dealing with missing-data problems.
Blending idea and alertness, authors Roderick Little and Donald Rubin evaluate historic methods to the topic and describe rigorous but uncomplicated equipment for multivariate research with lacking values. They then supply a coherent conception for research of difficulties according to likelihoods derived from statistical types for the knowledge and the missing-data mechanism and observe the idea to quite a lot of vital missing-data problems.
The re-creation now enlarges its assurance to include:
- Expanded insurance of Bayesian technique, either theoretical and computational, and of a number of imputation
- Analysis of knowledge with lacking values the place inferences are in line with likelihoods derived from formal statistical types for the data-generating and missing-data mechanisms
- Applications of the method in a number of contexts together with regression, issue research, contingency desk research, time sequence, and pattern survey inference
- Extensive references, examples, and exercises
Amstat News requested 3 assessment editors to cost their most sensible 5 favourite books within the September 2003 factor. Statistical research With lacking Data was once between these chosen.
