The latest questions for the topic "fiml"What specific method does AMOS use to impute missing data when Stochastic Regression is selected and 10 datasets are produced...
https://developer.ibm.com/answers/questions/287431/what-specific-method-does-amos-use-to-impute-missi.html
I created a diagram in amos of 200 interval ratio scaled variables with associated error terms. I had to create a observed variable for each item so that the missing values among all 200 items would be imputed. I have no real path model structure or 'dependent' variable. However, I was able to produce a series of imputed datasets, filling in the values for all 200 items this way.
My more immediate question is whether or not the imputation used when stochastic regression is selected falls under the category of:
EM (Expectation Maximization)
MI (Multiple Imputation)
And / Or
FIML (Full Information maximum likelihood)
I understand that there are differences between these methods but I am unsure what method AMOS is exactly using. My goal was to use FIML, but I fear what resulted was instead, some sort of MI using stochastic regression. The obvious follow-up question to this would be. How do I employ FIML (without an actual path model) in my scenario, to produce estimates for missing values.spssamosmissingimputationfimlTue, 12 Jul 2016 18:51:44 GMTThomasLofaro
