Imputation Methods for the Population and Housing Census 2000 in Korea Kim, Young-Won; Ryu, Jeabok; Park, Jinwoo; Lee, Jaewon;
We proposed imputation strategies for the Population and Housing Census 2000 in Korea. The total area of floor space and marital status which have relatively high non-response rates in the Census are considered to develope the effective missing value imputation procedures. The Classification and Regression Tree(CART) is employed to construct the imputation cells for hot-deck imputation, as well as to predict missing value by model-based approach. We compare three imputation methods which include CART model-based imputation, hot-deck imputation based on CART and logical hot-deck imputation proposed by The Korea National Statistical Office. The results suggest that the proposed hot-deck imputation based on CART is very efficient and strongly recommendable.
