miceadds-package: Some Additional Multiple Imputation Functions, Especially for...

Description Details Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Contains functions for multiple imputation which complements existing functionality in R. In particular, several imputation methods for the mice package (van Buuren & Groothuis-Oudshoorn, 2011, <doi:10.18637/jss.v045.i03>) are included. Main features of the miceadds package include plausible value imputation (Mislevy, 1991, <doi:10.1007/BF02294457>), multilevel imputation for variables at any level or with any number of hierarchical and non-hierarchical levels (Grund, Luedtke & Robitzsch, 2018, <doi:10.1177/1094428117703686>; van Buuren, 2018, Ch.7, <doi:10.1201/9780429492259>), imputation using partial least squares (PLS) for high dimensional predictors (Robitzsch, Pham & Yanagida, 2016), and nested multiple imputation (Rubin, 2003, <doi:10.1111/1467-9574.00217>).
