The double-headed arrows represent generic statistical associations, and the straight arrows specify a causal influences. , the straight arrow between JP and R). Panel B depicts a scenario in which the probability of missing data is indirectly related to the missing outcome variable via the unmeasured cause of missingness in box Z. analysis. This means that an unmeasured cause of missingness is problematic only if it has a strong relationship with the missing outcome after partialling out other measured variables.
This section describes two procedures that evaluate mean differences across missing data patterns. I omit procedures that assess homogeneity of covariances because it seems unlikely that covariance differences would exist in the absence of mean differences. In addition, simulation studies offer conflicting evidence about the performance of covariance-based tests (Kim & Bentler, 2002; Thoemmes & Enders, 2007). It therefore seems safe to view these procedures with caution until further research accumulates.
It therefore seems safe to view these procedures with caution until further research accumulates. Interested readers can consult Kim and Bentler (2002) for an overview of covariance-based tests. Univariate t-Test Comparisons The simplest method for assessing MCAR is to use a series of independent t tests to compare missing data subgroups (Dixon, 1988). This approach separates the missing and the complete cases on a particular variable and uses a t test to examine group mean differences on other variables in the data set.
