The authors analyze the efficiency of six missing data techniques for categorical item nonresponse under the assumption that data are missing at random or missing completely at random. By efficiency, the authors mean a procedure that produces an unbiased estimate of true sample properties that is also easy to implement. The investigated techniques include listwise deletion, mode substitution, random imputation, two regression imputations, and a Bayesian model-based procedure. The authors… Expand
