Definitions for "Imputation"
Imputation is a method of determing values to replace missing data in the dataset. Imputation methods can draw from the nonmissing sample data as well as from information outside the sample. In NRI, imputation is also used for creating pseudo points to represent changes observed in PSU and county base data.
A statistical method used to generate values for missing items, designed to minimize the bias of estimates based on the resulting data set. In this survey, missing responses were generated using a procedure known as a "hot-deck imputation" which uses random resampling from similar nonmissing cases to generate values for missing cases.
Making an assumption about a missing value. E.g. if a survey respondent hasn't supplied his or her sex, and the person's occupation is Housewife, it's a reasonable imputation that the sex is female.
