Handling Missing Data Using Multiple Imputation

Description

This course will cover the use of Stata to perform multiple-imputation analysis. Multiple imputation (MI) is a simulation-based technique for handling missing data. The course will provide a brief introduction to multiple imputation and will focus on how to perform MI in Stata using the mi command. The three stages of MI (imputation, complete-data analysis, and pooling) will be discussed in detail with accompanying Stata examples. Various imputation techniques will be discussed, including multivariate normal imputation (MVN) and multiple imputation using chained equations (MICE). Also, a number of examples demonstrating how to efficiently manage multiply imputed data within Stata will be provided. Linear and logistic regression analysis of multiply imputed data as well as several postestimation features will be presented.

Price: $1,295  

We offer a 15% discount for group enrollments of three or more participants.

Notes

Enrollment is limited. This course is offered in both classroom and web-based settings.

Classroom training courses are two-day courses that run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. These courses take place at a training center where computers with Stata installed are provided. A continental breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack will also be provided; the breakfast is available before the course begins.

Web-based training courses are four-day courses that run for three and a half hours each day. You will be provided with a temporary Stata license to install on your computer, a printed copy of the course notes, and all of the course datasets so that you can easily follow along. Learn more about how our web-based training courses work, watch a video demonstration, and find technical requirements for participating in this type of training.
