Abstract:

The problem that a relatively simple analysis is changed into a complex one just because some of the information is missing, is one which faces most practicing statisticians at some point in their career. Obviously the best way to treat missing information problems is not to have them. Unfortunately circumstances arise in which information is missing and nothing can be done to replace it for one reason or another.
