Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


It is shown that the classical taxonomy of missing data models, namely missing completely at random, missing at random and informative missingness, which has been developed almost exclusively within a selection modelling framework, can also be applied to pattern-mixture models. In particular, intuitively appealing identifying restrictions are proposed for a pattern-mixture MAR mechanism.
