The Impact of Missing Values on the Reliability Measures in a Linear Model.
Collaborative Research Center 386, Discussion Paper 125
Reliability measures in linear models are used in geodetic science and elsewhere to quantify the potential to detect outliers and to suppress their impact on the regression estimates. Here we shall study the effect of missing values on these reliability measures with the idea that, under a proper design, they should not change drastically when such a situation occurs.
