Article Abstract

There are techniques to address missing values in survey data. To deal with missing or underreported group in the overall survey results, weights can be used to produce a representative sample for a given population. More complex imputation methods also have been developed to fill in missing data for specific questions. These methods can prove to be more intricate. In addition, using such techniques come with implications that can affect statistical analyses.
