Abstract

Hot deck imputation is a procedure in which missing items are replaced with values from respondents. A model supporting such procedures is the model in which response probabilities are assumed equal within imputation cells. An efficient version of hot deck imputation is described for the cell response model and a computationally efficient variance estimator is given. An approximation to the fully efficient procedure in which a small number of values are imputed for each nonrespondent is described. Variance estimation procedures are illustrated in a Monte Carlo study.
