Multivariate Imputation by Chained Equations for DataSHIELD - Client

The mice package creates multiple imputations (replacement values) for multivariate missing data.

The DataSHIELD framework is a platform for federated data analysis that brings the algorithm to the data.

The dsMiceClient package is an add-on to mice that makes multiple imputation available for federated data systems. This is the package that the DataSHIELD end user installs locally.

The dsMice package is part of the DataSHIELD infrastructure. This is the package that the DataSHIELD node owner installs on the server.


The following code installs the dsMiceClient package:


In order to work well, the DataSHIELD nodes should have installed the server site functions available from dsMice


Warning: This is an experimental feature. These function do not yet actually work. If you have ideas about the integration of mice and DataSHIELD feel free to join in.
