Statistical Analysis of Incomplete Data

Part of the Springer Texts in Statistics book series (STS)


A basic problem in the statistical analysis of data sets is the loss of single observations, of variables, or of single values. Rubin (1976) can be regarded as the pioneer of the modern theory of Nonresponse in Sample Surveys. Little and Rubin (1987) and Rubin (1987) have discussed fundamental concepts for handling missing data based on decision theory and models for the mechanism of nonresponse.
