Title: An Introduction to Missing Data Analysis
Date: 4th September 2013 (Wednesday), 12pm-1pm
Venue: AS4/02-08 (Psychology Department Meeting Room)
It is common to observe missing data even if the design and the collection of data have been carefully conducted. The presence of missing data is the rule rather than the exception. Conventional approaches, such as list wise deletion and single imputation, may lead to biased results. In this talk, I will introduce the modern approaches (full information maximum likelihood and multiple imputation) to handle missing data. Several examples in R will be used to illustrate the procedures.
