But have you ever had an outcome variable with no outliers because there was a boundary value at which accurate measurements couldn’t be or weren’t recorded?
- Income data where all values above $100,000 are recorded as $100k or greater
- Soil toxicity ratings where the device cannot measure values below 1 ppm
- Number of arrests where there are no zeros because the data set came from police records where all participants had at least one arrest
These are all examples of data that are truncated or censored. Failing to incorporate the truncation or censoring will result in biased results.
This webinar will discuss what truncated and censored data are and how to identify them.
There are several different models that are used with this type of data. We will go over each model and discuss which type of data is appropriate for each model.
We will then compare the results of models that account for truncated or censored data to those that do not. From this you will see what possible impact the wrong model choice has on the results.
