Description Usage Arguments Value Examples
This function tests MCAR vs MAR by using both the complete and incomplete variables.
1  RBtest.iter(data,K)

data 
Dataset with at least one complete variable. 
K 
Maximum number of iterations. 
A list of the following elements:
abs.nbrMD
The absolute quantity of missing data per variable.
rel.nbrMD
The percentage of missing data per variable.
K
The maximum admitted number of iterations.
iter
The final number of iterations.
type.final
Vector of the same length than the number of variables of the dataset, where '0' is for variables with MCAR data, '1' is for variables with MAR data and '1' is for complete variables.
TYPE.k
Dataframe containing the type of missing data after each iteration. Each row is a vector having the same length than the number of variables of the dataset, where '0' is for variables with MCAR data, '1' is for variables with MAR data and '1' is for complete variables.
