statsmodels.imputation.mice.MICEData.get_fitting_data

MICEData.get_fitting_data(vname)[source]

Return the data needed to fit a model for imputation.

The data is used to impute variable vname, and therefore only includes cases for which vname is observed.

Values of type PatsyFormula in init_kwds or fit_kwds are processed through Patsy and subset to align with the model’s endog and exog.

Parameters:
vnamestr

The variable for which the fitting data is returned.

Returns:
endogDataFrame

Observed values of vname.

exogDataFrame

Regression design matrix for imputing vname.

init_kwdsdict-like

The init keyword arguments for vname, processed through Patsy as required.

fit_kwdsdict-like

The fit keyword arguments for vname, processed through Patsy as required.
