Talk Abstract: It is common for data scientists and researchers to encounter missing data. The term “missing” often has a bad connotation and is usually considered a nuisance. Advances in missing data treatments such as multiple imputation and maximum likelihood procedures allow data analysts to obtain unbiased parameter estimates under certain circumstances. This talk will introduce missing data terminology and ways of handling missing data using R.
