A Simple Approach to Inference in Covariance Structure Modeling With Missing Data: Bayesian Analysis

May 1996

Bengt Muthen

In this report, CRESST/UCLA researcher investigates an improved approach for educational analyses where there are significant amounts of missing data. The author found that a Bayesian approach developed by himself and Gerhard Arminger, offers a promising technique for missing data covariance structure modeling. The technique should soon be available in covariance structure software.
