Formulas are of the form
IMPUTED_VARIABLES ~ MODEL_SPECIFICATION [ | GROUPING_VARIABLES ]
The left-hand-side of the formula object lists the variable or variables to
be imputed. The right-hand side excluding the optional
model specification for the underlying predictor.
If grouping variables are specified, the data set is split according to the values of those variables, and model estimation and imputation occur independently for each group.
dplyr::group_by is also supported. If groups are
defined in both the formula and using
dplyr::group_by, the data is
grouped by the union of grouping variables. Any missing value in one of the
grouping variables results in an error.
Grouping is ignored for
Linear regression model imputation with
impute_lm can be used
to impute numerical variables based on numerical and/or categorical
predictors. Several common imputation methods, including ratio and (group)
mean imputation can be expressed this way. See
details on possible model specification.
Robust linear regression through M-estimation with
impute_rlm can be used to impute numerical variables employing
numerical and/or categorical predictors. In M-estimation, the
minimization of the squares of residuals is replaced with an alternative
convex function of the residuals that decreases the influence of
Also see e.g. Huber (1981).
Lasso/elastic net/ridge regression imputation with
can be used to impute numerical variables employing numerical and/or
categorical predictors. For this method, the regression coefficients are
found by minimizing the least sum of squares of residuals augmented with a
penalty term depending on the size of the coefficients. For lasso regression
(Tibshirani, 1996), the penalty term is the sum of squares of the
coefficients. For ridge regression (Hoerl and Kennard, 1970), the penalty
term is the sum of absolute values of the coefficients. Elasticnet regression
(Zou and Hastie, 2010) allows switching from lasso to ridge by penalizing by
a weighted sum of the sum-of-squares and sum of absolute values term.
