Abstract

Abstract In official statistics, when a file of microdata must be delivered to external users, it is very difficult to propose them a file where missing values has been treated by multiple imputations. In order to overcome this difficulty, we propose a method of single imputation for qualitative data that respect numerous constraints. The imputation is balanced on totals previously estimated; editing rules can be respected; the imputation is random, but the totals are not affected by an imputation variance.
