This dataset is an extract of the CHEM97 dataset (Fielding, A. et al, 2003) dealing with point scores of 31,022 pupils grouped in 2,280 schools. CHEM97Na reports point score for Schools with more than 70 pupils only, i.e. 1681 pupils grouped in 18 schools. Systematically missing values and sporadically missing values have been added according to a missing completely at random (MCAR) mechanism (Little R.J.A. and Rubin D.B., 2002). Systematically missing values are values that are missing for all pupils of a same school, while sporadically missing values are values which are missing for an individual only (Resche-Rigon, et al 2013).
