wNNSel-package: Weighted Nearest Neighbor Imputation of Missing Values using...

Description Details Note Author(s) References


This package introduces new non-parametric tools for the imputation of missing values in high-dimensional data. It includes weighted nearest neighbor imputation methods that use distances for selected covariates. The careful selection of distances that carry information about the missing values yields an imputation tool. It does not require pre-specified k, unlike other kNN methods. It can be used to impute missing values in high-dimensional data when n<p.
