R build status CRAN codecov Dependencies

Fast imputations under the object-oriented programming paradigm. Moreover there are offered a few functions built to work with popular R packages such as 'data.table' or 'dplyr'. The biggest improvement in time performance could be achieve for a calculation where a grouping variable have to be used. A single evaluation of a quantitative model for the multiple imputations is another major enhancement. A new major improvement is one of the fastest predictive mean matching in the R world because of presorting and binary search.

Performance benchmarks (check performance_validity.R file at extdata).

Advanced Usage - Vignette




# install.packages("devtools")

Recommended to download boosted BLAS library, even x100 faster:

cd /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/lib
ln -sf /System/Library/Frameworks/Accelerate.framework/Frameworks/vecLib.framework/Versions/Current/libBLAS.dylib libRblas.dylib

Quick Implementation



# plot NA structure
upset_NA(air_miss, 6)


# Check out the vignette for an advance usage
# There is required a thorough examination

# Other packages - popular simple solutions
# Hmisc
data.frame(Map(function(x) Hmisc::impute(x, 'random'), air_miss))

mice::complete(mice::mice(air_miss, printFlag = FALSE))

Summing up, miceFast offer a relevant reduction of a calculations time for:
