    Multiple imputation




    I am doing a research about Aids in my city in Yemen. Unfortunately I have many missing data . So I used SPSS multiple imputation. I am not sure whether which I had done is proper. Please can any one review my results

    You should start by describing the context and procedures performed! Looking forward to your reply.

    Re: Multiple imputation


    Thank you for your quick response. The study was descriptive. the number of registered patients with Aids was 305. There are a lot of missing data (categorical and continuous). I used SPSS program 20. At first I tried to test the type of data and I found as follows
    EM Meansa
    years Age testdate
    2002.48 31.05 11.10.02
    a Little's MCAR test: Chi-Square = 4.797, DF = 2, Sig. = .091
    Then I made five imputation with polling. I used descriptive statistics, Ch square and t. test to compare between males and females. I got pooled data in descriptive statistics and Chi square, t.test or Kruskal. In my results I got some off them significant and some were no. Should I continue in this way or there is some thing still missing me. I hope to get some advice from you
