GDP has been getting more abstract concept containing wire range of imputed values
as imputed rents, value added of research and development, consumption of fixed capital or the estimation of the size of shadow economy.
Despite its popularity, this method of using imputed values
to compute a sample geometric mean which is used to estimate the population geometric mean (needed in many common statistical analyses) has not been adequately reviewed in the statistical literature.
With these new imputed values
, we can compare the actual income reported in the CE to the imputed value
3,25) There were 38,280 participants, 1,440 missing/excluded/highly imputed values
, 5,280 with imputed values
and 31,175 with no imputed values
Secondly, the selection of model used to generate the imputed values
must be well suited with the subsequent analysis so that it can conserve the associations among variables that will be the focus of later analysis.
We compared estimates of mean income for native and imputed values
in the MCBS stratified by marital status and sex to that of the CPS-ASEC.
The imputed values
plus the historical observations of parameter [bar.
Laboratory data in environmental and biomedical studies are frequently constrained by a lower limit of detection (LOD); however, multiple imputation (MI) methods can provide valid and robust parameter estimates, as well as explicit imputed values
, that can be used as variables in subsequent statistical analyses.
Although this procedure shares some characteristics with mean imputation, it differs in that individual imputed values
are derived from multiple variables in the data set (McKnight et al.
Expanding Imputed Values
in the National Income and Product Accounts.
Replacing missing values with imputed values
will result in more accurate analyses; the overall sample size remains the same and the sample distribution is more accurate.
