Although researchers do their best to avoid missing data, it is a common problem in medical and epidemiological studies. How large your missing data problem is and how to deal with it depends on how much data is missing and why your data are missing. This two-day course provides you with tools how to evaluate and handle missing data in medical and epidemiological studies with different missing data rates.

The participant is able to distinguish between different missing data mechanisms called missing completely at random (MCAR), missing at random (MAR) and missing not at random (MNAR).
The course is designed for everybody who wants to learn about missing data because missing data may be present in your own research and you are going to start with your data analysis or you want to learn how to judge other articles or research grants.
