Course overview:

This course will cover introductory modelling for the analysis of missing data.

The methods are presented both at a theoretical level and also with practical examples where all code is available. The practical classes include instructions on how to use the popular mice package.

The course is structured over 3 days and includes classes on:

  • An introduction to missing data analysis terminology, missing completely at random, missing at random, not missing at random
  • A revision of likelihood and regression approaches
  • The Fully Conditional Specification (FCS) approach
  • An introduction to the mice package
  • The use of Bayesian and likelihood-based methods in missing data analysis
  • Bayesian missing data analysis using JAGS
  • More advanced missing data analysis including non-ignorable and not missing at random methods
