Multiple imputation of missing values: further update of ice, with an emphasis on interval censoring


  • Patrick Royston

    (Cancer and Statistical Methodology Groups, MRC Clinical Trials Unit)


Multiple imputation of missing data continues to be a topic of considerable interest and importance to applied researchers. In this article, the ice package for multiple imputation is further updated. Special attention in this article is paid to imputing interval-censored observations, and a suggestion to use imputation of right-censored survival data to elucidate covariate effects graphically.
