Dummy variables can be then imputed under the assumption of multivariate normality, which can result in imputed values
besides zero and one.
Several studies of global diversification focus on the cross-sectional relation between the firm's market value and the sum of the imputed values
for its segments as stand-alone domestic entities.
Our results show that cases with no imputed values
differ significantly from the full-supplement imputation cases with respect to health insurance coverage.
On the other hand, some very complex methods may make unreasonable assumptions about the data, be computationally impractical for very large databases and the marginal improvement in the imputed values
compared to those obtained using simpler methods not be justified by the additional cost or time.
The imputed values
are estimates of what the plan's score would be, based on its scores on other measures.
We examine the measure of gross output and then go to the allocation of the imputed values
, which forms the heart of the currently used and proposed alternative imputation techniques.
In contrast, multiple imputation (MI) methods yield valid and robust parameter estimates and explicit imputed values
for variables that can be analyzed as outcomes or predictors.
To the extent that the procedures violate the mechanisms leading to nonresponse, the resulting imputed values
will lead to biased and inconsistent results when used for analytical purposes.
3) The conglomerate's imputed value
is calculated as the sum of the imputed values
of the conglomerate's segments.
These imputation regression models were fitted first using a simple model of only SF-12 items only (simple model), and then using SF-12 items plus patient demographics (age, gender, race/ethnicity, education, income), current smoking status and medical comorbidities (enhanced model) to increase the predicting power of the imputation model and to improve the accuracy of the imputed values
Weaknesses: The imputed values
may be inconsistent with other data in the record
8) Because the same data are used in compiling the ECI and the ECEC, imputed values
for the ECI also are used in ECEC tabulations.
