van Buuren, Stef; van Rijckevorsel, Jan L. A.
Psychometrika, v57 n4 p567-80 Dec 1992
A technique is presented to transform incomplete categorical data into complete data by imputing appropriate scores into missing cells. A solution of the optimization problem is suggested, and relevant psychometric theory is discussed. The average correlation should be at least 0.50 before the method becomes practical. (SLD)
