Thursday 25 Jan 2018: Statistical Science seminar- No Such Thing as Missing Data
Dr Daniel Farewell - Cardiff University
The phrase "missing data" has come to mean "information we really, really wish we had". But is it actually data, and is it actually missing? I will discuss the practical implications of taking a different philosophical perspective, and demonstrate the use of a simple model for informative observation in longitudinal studies that does not require any notion of missing data.
