The Effect of Different Imputation Methods on Analytical Statistics of Simple Linear Regression

by Jann-Huei Jinn .

Abstract: We have considered the simple linear regression model where the errors are normally and independently distributed with E( )=0 and Var( )= . Let , and denote the estimates of , , and where "c" indicates that these are estimates from a completed data set. We present the results of a theoretical investigation of the effect that commonly used imputation methods have on the properties of confidence for and . Specifically, we will try to identify "good" imputation procedures and conditions where specific imputation procedures work well.

Key Words: Simple Linear Regression, Imputation
