In the talk,
will first try to motivate why simply ignoring the problem of missing data is a bad option if a substantial amount of data is missing. Imputation has been proposed a long time ago as a method to treat the problem of missing data adequately. Since single imputation has also severe disadvantages, the standard is (or should be) nowadays multiple imputations. Here, several options can be chosen by the imputer. Finally, Heumann will discuss how to bootstrap and multiple imputations can be combined for inference purposes, e.g. standard errors or confidence intervals.
I’m a professor at the department of statistics of the LMU. My main job is teaching statistics in our Bachelor and Master programs and also as a service in the Bachelor program for the faculty of business administration and economics.
I am (co-)author of a number of (mainly) introductory books to Statistics. My main (statistical) research topics have been likelihood based methods for longitudinal categorical data (PhD thesis), missing data and the combination of imputation and bootstrap methods to inference problems with missing data.
