Hi,

I just started reading the free chapter and found 'imputing missing values', I may not be an expert in this field, but was that suppose to be 'inputing missing values'? This is on page 5.

Re: imputing missing values
Hi Michael,

Thanks for responding to this. I actually did mean to say "imputing". When we impute missing values, we replace them with reasonable non-missing estimates (filler values if you will) before continuing the data analysis. Missing data is such important and pervasive problem for the data analyst that I decided to add a separate chapter on the subject (chapter 16).

Keep the comments coming!

Sincerely,

Rob
