# statsmodels.imputation.mice.MICEData.get_fitting_data¶

method

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
vnamestring

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.
