This paper uses sequential regression multivariate imputation to impute missing and interval-censored values in the 2000 and 2006 Labour Force Surveys, and compares poverty estimates obtained under several different methods of reconciling coarsened earnings data. Estimates of poverty amongst the employed are found not… CONTINUE READING
