The Relative Performance of Full Information Maximum Likelihood Estimation for Missing Data in Structural Equation Models.
Enders, Craig K.; Bandalos, Deborah L.
Structural Equation Modeling, v8 n3 p430-57 2001
Used Monte Carlo simulation to examine the performance of four missing data methods in structural equation models: (1)full information maximum likelihood (FIML); (2) listwise deletion; (3) pairwise deletion; and (4) similar response pattern imputation. Results show that FIML estimation is superior across all conditions of the design. (SLD)
