missForest: Nonparametric Missing Value Imputation using Random Forest
The function 'missForest' in this package is used to
impute missing values particularly in the case of mixed-type
data. It uses a random forest trained on the observed values of
a data matrix to predict the missing values. It can be used to
impute continuous and/or categorical data including complex
interactions and non-linear relations. It yields an out-of-bag
(OOB) imputation error estimate without the need of a test set
or elaborate cross-validation. It can be run in parallel to
save computation time.
