A Comparison of the Missing-Indicator Method and Complete Case Analysis in Case of Categorical Data

Zhuchkova S., Rotmistrov A.

Sociology. WP BRP. National Research University Higher School of Economics, 2019

In 2021, the academic team RANDAN works on three projects:

- The value-forming and behavioral-forming roles of rap as the most popular, influential in the youth environment, and value-loaded form of vocal delivery in music today (for short, "Rap")

- An application for diagnosing the problematic nature of missingness in data -- aimed at the needs of social scientists and based on fundamental statistical research (statistical experiments on simulated data) (for short, "Missingness")

- The combination of value-forming and behavioral-forming roles of YouTube as a traditional media and as a social media (social network) on the case of the ecological attitude towards household waste (for short, "YouTube")

We invite you to lead the work of the scientific team on our YouTube channel
